Jesus said, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” John 14:15
How serious are you about following Jesus’ example in your daily life?
Well, it’s time to take it up to a new level.
A friend invited me to this Facebook event her church is promoting for the first 20 days of February.
The idea is to be spiritually radical in following specific examples from Jesus’ life. Not dogmatically, but practically, in the spirit of the Good Samaritan.
Here’s the way it works:
20 Days. 20 Radical Acts.
Here’s the invitation from their Facebook page (see the link below):
“Are you up for the Challenge? Jesus taught it. Can you live it?
“Join the TMC Youth Community around the world for this challenge. Starting February 1st, we’re going to commit to focusing on one Radical Act a day and then share how we’ve put it into practice or gotten better insight about it.”
They pretty much leave it up to you as to how literal you want to take these directives. Personally, I’d start with the spirit of each one. But let the Holy Spirit move you.
Here’s the schedule:
2/1 – Be childlike
2/2 – Befriend lepers, prostitutes, “undesirables”
2/3 – Cast the beam out of your own eye
2/4 – Challenge Pharisees
2/5 – Do good to people that hate you
2/6 – Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, shelter strangers, visit prisoners
2/7 – Forgive 70 X 7
2/8 – Heal the sick, cast out evil, raise the dead
2/9 – Let your light shine
2/10-Live more abundantly
2/11-Lose your life to find it
2/12-Love your neighbor as yourself
2/13-Multiply loaves and fishes
2/14-Seek the kingdom first – don’t worry about food/drink/clothing
2/15-Sell what you have – give to the poor
2/16-Take up your bed and walk
2/17-Travel without a wallet
2/18-Turn water into wine
2/19-Walk on water
2/20-Wash someone’s feet
Here’s the link if you want to officially participate: Follow Jesus’ Example for 20 Days I encourage you to join in because people will be sharing how they have tried to put these ideas into practice and we can all learn from each other.
