I was at a meeting in the hostel where I work today where we had ministers and musical sections from Churches around for a fellowship service. I wont say it was the best service I have ever attended because I would be lying, but neither was it the worst. It was however not pitched at the correct audience, in my opinion anyway.
There was some good came out of it though. At the end of it I was talking to someone about God, prayer and if there is anything to it. Knowing this person quite well and knowing we would have many chances to talk on an almost daily basis I said. "Rather than debate this now, why don't we try and experiment and talk about it once completed?" I then asked how he would feel about commuting to praying and reading a Bible everyday for a month and see if it makes a difference to his life. He agreed that there was no harm in trying this and he was willing to give it a go and see if it would work. Now we who are Christians know the power of prayer and the word of God and its ability to change lives, this person does not. I know if he approaches this in the right way wondrous things may happen in his life. I ask that everyone who is willing pray for this man as he takes this step towards God, that he will use this opportunity and come to know God through Jesus. I will be praying for him everyday and ask that if it is not too much you do too. If you do not know God then I would challenge you to do the same thing spend a short amount of time each day reading the Bible and praying for 30 days. If you do know God but have a friend or family member who does not know God challenge them to try God out for 30 days and see what He can do.
So there you go, challenge issued.
Psalm 34:8 (KJV)
O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
This blog is supposed to be, as much as I can, my daily journey through life as a Christian. I hope it to be my thoughts and feelings on life but be as grounded in the Christian message as it can. My intention is not to create a daily readings or bible study guide but to look at my life in terms of a Christian trying to find and follow God's mission using his Life User's Manuel AKA the Bible.
