The Great Experiment: Day 1

Here is today’s guide for the “Five Rs” of The Great Experiment, October 1-31, 2018.

1. Read & Pray

“In all circumstances take up ... the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints.” Ephesians 6:16–18

Read Ephesians 6:10-20 for more context

Ask God to clothe you with His armor. Pray the same for each person in your family, and for the whole Body of Christ in general.

2. Repent. What sins do I need to repent of today? What hindrances to my devotion to Christ can I remove today?

3. Respond to the Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit, what is the one thing you most want me to do today? (Write it down, and do it today).

4. Raise Your Faith. God, give me the strength and courage to complete my Joshua Faith Challenge.

5. Represent Christ. How will I bear witness to Christ today? With whom shall I share the Gospel today?

    I had prayed for my classroom and yesterday a student pulled out a small New Testament that he carried around and was sharing it with his work group. Amazing!

Before you go, would you like to spend more time seeking God?

It’s hard to carve out time to sit in God’s presence and learn what He wants to teach us when we are daily bombarded by distraction. That’s why we’ve equipped thousands of Christians like you to seek God and pray for revival to come to our hearts and nation. This free 5-lesson course has 25 daily readings that will rekindle your prayer life.

You’ve demonstrated such a heart for revival, we thought you’d want to know about this opportunity.

Is this course something that interests you?
