Week 1: The Red Letter Challenge

If we can EXPRESS Jesus as He really is,

people will fall in love with Him.

 

“Everyone then who HEARS these words of mine and DOES them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock. And everyone who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell, and great was the fall of it.” -Matthew 7:24-27

 

The obstacles of GOOD INTENTIONS and BAD REPUTATIONS.

 

“The harvest is PLENTIFUL, but the workers are FEW.” -Matthew 9:37

 

5 Targets:

  1. Being We need to be with Jesus. 
  2. Forgiving We are called to practice grace.
  3. Serving We are saved to serve.
  4. Giving Followers of Jesus are generous.
  5. Going Following Jesus is an adventure.

 

To put Jesus’ words into practice, you need STRENGTH from Jesus and SUPPORT from others.
