March 25 – 20 Day Journey

March 25
Overcome evil with Good

Read – 1 John 5:1-5

This is the day. Good Friday. Our Savior Jesus hangs on the cross. He lays down his life for all of creation.

Pause and reflect on our journey together. There is no new task for today. Just reflect and consider how to focus on Christ and His Kingdom from this day forward.

For now, just enjoy this hope, “The one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God overcomes the world.”

Give your enemy a drink

Read – Luke 6:27-36

This is the same as yesterday. So if you found yesterday’s task a little difficult, try again today. You can do it, be kind and merciful today!

March 23 – 20 Day Journey

March 23
Give your enemy food

Read – Exodus 23:4-5 

This is a practical command from God, guarding against our usual behavior towards those we deem our enemies.

Because our enemy feels hunger, that reminds us that our enemies are human too. Thus, they were created in the image of God and deserving of our love.

I know, feeding your enemy might be difficult to do today. But is there something you can do to practically show someone (enemy/neighbor/friend) they are loved by God?

March 22
Trust in God to make right the world, don’t take vengeance up as your responsibility. God will right the wrongs of the world.

Read – Leviticus 19:18

It is interesting that the “God will repay” is wrapped up in the Greatest Commandment passage that Jesus quotes in the Gospels. Consider now a practical way to love your neighbor today, and give it a try!

In other words, you don’t have to right the wrongs of the world. Your task is to love God, love neighbor.

Live at peace with each other, forgive, be merciful and kind – live in harmony with one another

Read – Matthew 18:15-35

Mourn with those who are mourning

Read – 2 Thessalonians 1:3-5

Encourage one another. Build each other up. We are not meant to go through mourning and difficult times alone. We have a church for that.

If you are discouraged, reach out today, and share a burden with a brother or sister in Christ.
