Love Dare~Days 19-21

I am SO sorry that I didn't get a chance to put yesterday's dare up!!! Being out of town makes it very difficult to get this done! Ahhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! So, I'm going to put up yesterday's and then go ahead and post today's and tomorrow (simplified versions) :)

Day 19~"Love is impossible" (without God)

"Let us love one another, for love is from God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God." -1 John 4:7

Today's Dare:

Look back over the dares from previous days. Were there some that seemed impossible to you? Have you realized your need for God to change your heart and to give you the ability to love? Ask Him to show you where you stand with Him, and ask for the strength and grace to settle your eternal destination.

To Journal:

~What do you believe God is saying to you?
~Is there a stirring in your heart?
~What decision have you made in response to this?

Day 20~"Love is Jesus Christ"

"While we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly." -Romans 5:6

Today's Dare:

Dare to take God at His Word. Dare to trust Jesus Christ for salvation. Dare to pray, "Lord Jesus, I'm a sinner. But you have shown your love for me by dying to forgive my sins, and You have proven Your power to save me from death by Your resurrection. Lord, change my heart, and save me by Your grace."

To Journal:

~Write about what this experience has been like for you.
~Even if you are only renewing your committment to receive and express His love, what has He shown you today?

Day 21~"Love is satisfied in God"

"The Lord will continually guide you, and satisfy your desire." -Isaiah 58:11

Today's Dare:

Be intentional today about making a time to pray and read your Bible. Try reading a chapter out of Proverbs each day, or reading a chapter in the Gospels. As you do, immerse yourself in the love and promises God has for you. This will add to your growth as you walk with Him.

To Journal:

~How do you think spending time daily with God will change your situation and perspective?
~How can you make Him a bigger part of your day?
