It’s not too late to Intensify!

It’s not too late to Intensify!

Let me encourage you to commit to our Intensify initiative that begins today. The Bible reading is not designed to be a study, although having a pen or pencil close is always good for key passages or things you want to look up later. I encourage you just to our the Word over your life in these 90 days. Doing so will not guarantee spiritual growth, but there is no chance of spiritual growth without the presence of the Word (paraphrase from John Piper).

Pick a meal to fast each week. It may vary as to the day, but you can do it. If you’re worried about how you may feel physically, remember that’s part of it. Some may choose to fast from things your more dependent on, like caffeine. I don’t know why anyone would do such a thing (just kidding), but it is a consideration. One thing we are doing in our house is to keep the tv off for longer periods throughout the week so we can faithfully live out these commitments.

Lastly, there will be an opportunity online to share what the Lord is teaching you and share stories with one another. Testimony is a key part of our fellowship as a body, and this summer affords us some wonderful opportunities to encourage and exhort one another with the testimony of what the Lord is doing through Intensify.

May God richly bless you in your pursuit!
