Introduction and Invitation
90 Days Through the Gospels: A Prayer-Care-Share Scripture Journey with Jesus
Welcome to the year 2020 and “90 Days Through the Gospels: Journeying with Jesus to Prayer-Care-Share.” How fitting to begin this year by saturating ourselves in the supremacy of Jesus by reading and learning His Words, will, ways, commands and promises written for us in the gospel scriptures. Many of you may have made a commitment or “resolution” to read your Bible every day and pray; this journey will help to make that hope a habit this year. We are so humbled and grateful that you joined us on this journey.
This is going to be an amazing journey that will help you live out life as a disciple-maker. Whether in a synagogue, by the sea, or walking down the street; Jesus modeled how to love God, love our neighbor and share the Good news of salvation. We can show love and make disciples every day, along the way to wherever we are going or whatever we are doing by following Jesus’ example. The gospels tell us that as Jesus was “passing through,” “on his way to do…”, or sitting on the shore enjoying the view; He prayed, He cared, and He shared the Kingdom message of salvation.
This journey was written to show us how simple it can be to be a disciple-maker every day by following Jesus’ model that is recorded in every chapter of the gospels. Every day you will read one chapter of the gospels beginning with Matthew and a short devotional prompt of how you can pray, care and share based on that chapter. It is simple to share the love and message of Jesus every day; giving help and hope to those who need it. A simple, “How are you doing?” can open an entire conversation that will teach you how to pray and how to care for them – sharing the message of Jesus will change them forever. Your life; your attitude, affection, availability, and affirmation will help show them what it looks like to be a follower of Jesus Christ. Please pray with us and read Isaiah 9:1-7; looking forward to the coming Christ as we look forward to beginning our gospel journey in Matthew 1.
Prayer: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace – I look forward to what You will do; what You will teach me, and the doors You will open for me to share Your love and message on our journey with You these next 90 days. I commit to be faithful in this journey. I want You to saturate my life with Your Word and Your purpose. I seek to know You and make You known: be glorified in my life. Help me to focus – to give you my full attention as I read – and teach me to live a prayer-care-share lifestyle so that I can be Your witness, sharing Your love and message everywhere and every day.
