Fast 2020 – Quiet Time #19
Here are somethings to consider as we end the fast
For the rest of the fast commit to abstaining from media (tv, internet and the like for non work related purposes)/social media and instead invest that time with your family and the body of Christ.
Memory scripture: 1 John 2:15-17
Quiet Time #19
Paul connected his life in the body of Christ with Christ living within him. He knew in order to make an impact; he needed the body. Today during your time with God, meditate on what it would look like for you to no longer live and instead for Christ to live within you, your new life being within the body.
In conclusion, the world has much to offer but what Christ offers lasts forever. Hopefully this time revealed where your heart is, whether you are maturing and if your eyes are on the kingdom or if you have become stagnant and your eyes have wandered towards the world. Through a great cost, Jesus made a way for us to receive Salvation. Do not store up for yourself treasure on earth, instead let us store up for ourselves treasure in heaven for where our treasures are there our hearts will be also (Matthew 6:19-24).
Our theme scripture is 1 John 2:15-17:
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
Starts January 1st at 12am
Ends January 19th together after our worship service
Pray for leadership and boldness for the Columbus Church to spread the gospel. Pray for maturity and growth in the church.
Pray weekly with someone in the church. Pray for everyone in your ministry and at least one day a week pray for everyone in the church. Also pray for people in your life that you would like to see become Christians. In fact it would be great to create a list so you have a reminder of who your praying for.
Write out a spiritual hit list Decide what you will be fasting from before the fast begins. Think through and pray about it before you decide share it with your family group. We are asking for you to keep a journal each day of the fast.
