Lately I’ve been seeing everyone and their mom doing the “21 Day Fix”. I am so excited that so many people starting on a journey to better themselves through food! Nutrition as we know is a huge factor or losing weight as well as alleviating many different medical problems you may be having. It is important to be filling our body with food that is good for us and provides us nourishment.
The same can be said of our soul. It is beneficial, necessary, and important to be feeding our soul with God’s word. Yet so many Christians starve themselves spiritually, every single day. We have to eat to survive and our faith is no different. We have to be IN God’s word in order for our faith to survive. There are plenty of people who have been Christians their entire lives, but haven’t spent a day in God’s word outside of their weekly church service.
This, my friends, should break your heart. We are given such an abundance of resources, yet so few take advantage of it. We are told throughout Scripture to continually stay in the word.
Joshua 1:8 tells us “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
Just recently, I finished up a bible study on JoyShop Ministries Seeking God. The first part of the study makes the case for the fact that God wants us to seek him, Part 2 discusses the benefits of seeking God, Part 3 delves into how to seek God, and Part 4 gives you the foundations to seek God. I highly encourage you to check out this study as I honestly believe it will change your life.
At the end of the study, Anita leaves us with a 21 Day Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to make a habit out of being in God’s word every single day. And as a result, we will develop a meaningful and fruitful relationship with our Lord. As a small group study, we have challenged one another to this challenge, but I want to challenge more than just the people I live in the same community with.
I want to challenge you. 21 days of being in God’s word. 21 days of finding out what beautiful promises God has for us. 21 days of starting and establishing a living and personal relationship with the Lord.
Are you in??
So here’s the challenge.
We will spend the next 21 Days (beginning on Wednesday February 11th) reading through the book of John, one chapter a day.
In order to help and guide you through the 21 Day Challenge, I have created a packet of printables. One for each day. These daily worksheets include some questions and prompts in order to guide you in your reading and really help you flesh out all that God wants to reveal to you.
And if you need some encouragement, accountability, or just want a place to share what God has revealed to you… Feel free to join our 21 Day Bible Fix Facebook Group! I will try my best to remind everyone of their reading assignments as well as encourage you to share throughout the week!
I hope you will accept the challenge and give God 21 days of your life. I hope you will strive for the goal of finishing this, don’t let one skipped day stop you from completing the challenge. Maybe it will take you 30 days, but continue on. Persevere. Through it, I hope He changes your life and shows you the power of spending time in his word on a daily basis.
