40 Days of Love – Prayer ♥ Care ♥ Share – September 29 to November 7, 2019
Day 36: Sunday, November 3
We rely on God’s protection with every breath for every second of every day. He created and sustains us, and we would perish without him. His protection gives you courage, comfort and peace. Fear vanishes when we focus on our great God watching over us. Share this with someone who seems to worry or is often fearful. Let them know that God watching over them is like a parent watching their new baby sleep; He just can’t take His eyes off you!
Day 37: Monday, November 4
Do you know someone who makes the same mistake over and over again? They suffer the hard consequences, and you think they’ve finally learned their lesson, only to watch them fall, or run, back into trouble. Share Christ’s message of love and hope with them today. With a gentle tone of lovingkindness, offer to journey with them to change their choices and put into practice the hard lessons that they have to endure so they don’t suffer any longer.
Day 38: Tuesday, November 5
Most people think negative thoughts about themselves. Even people who seem super self confident or conceited have insecurity issues and often cover them up by trying to tell everyone how great they are. Share with someone today how God sees them—they are His beautiful, gifted creation that He loves so much that He was willing to send His Son to die for them. Let them know how precious and valuable they are to God. Make sure you believe this for yourself as well.
Day 39: Wednesday, November 6
Christ’s love causes us to share His love. Once you’ve experienced it, you just have to go and express it. Jesus said, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:35 NIV). When people ask you why you care, why you give, why your sacrifice for others, always be quick to answer that it is Jesus’ love pouring through you. Share Jesus through your love.
Day 40: Thursday, November 7
Can you believe that this is the final day of the 40 Days of Love? So now what? Well, we go loving on day 41, 42, 43, and 99…. We love, until in the blink of an eye, we are absent from the body and present with the Lord. Forty Days of Love was meant to help you make love a lifestyle, to see how easy and fulfilling it is to live out a Prayer-Care-Share lifestyle—even to your “enemies.” Never stop sharing the love and message of Jesus. You were born to love and live out Christ’s love. After all, King Jesus was born to
die for you.
