I love an ice-cold coke. Pop the top, and it has lots of fizz! Have you ever drank a canned coke after the top has been off for a while, and it has gone flat? There is no fizz! Horrible! Just Gross. We expect the fizz when we open up a carbonated drink, don’t we? We expect the fizz every time!
Passionate Christianity should be the norm for every believer—not the exception!We would never settle for a flat coke that has lost its fizz. Likewise, we should never settle for a stale, mundane, dull, boring relationship with God. Are you vaguely unsettled with the idea that somehow a daily relationship with God…the God of the universe…can end up flat?
Begin again today with a John 10:10 passionate, expectation of abundance! Don’t settle! Guarding the fire of devotion in your heart is the most foundational discipline of your life. Refuse to accept a faith experience that is so far below what God intended for you.
Reflect and Journal: As you complete the first week of your 21 day fast, make sure you are writing down the things that God is speaking to you. Continue to pray fervently for the main concerns in your life. Trust God to bring an answer as you journal your thoughts and inspirations through this time.
Prayer: Take time to pray for the following needs:
For NXT LVL students to make disciples for the next generation
For wisdom and spiritual growth of small group leaders for NXT LVL students
