#40 Days to the Cross

Christian worship is a pattern of rhythms. 

Revelation and Response.

Remembering and Anticipating.

This was true in the Old Testament, when God’s people would journey to the temple to worship and celebrate the Feasts, and it is true in the New Testament where we worship God as a Church – gathered or scattered.

The #40daystothecross journey is not necessarily a fast however, inevitably you will need to sacrifice time every day to complete your daily challenge. It is more than just a devotional challenge. It is a commitment to set our hearts on pilgrimage; to survey the beauty of the Christ, the Cross and the power of the Resurrection every single day.

For some who have undertaken the challenge before, it is a revisiting of old paths. For others, it will be a venture into something mysterious and a little scary. But regardless, we tarry with anticipation of God’s presence and inspiration. He is in the pages of our Bibles, between the lines of our journal entries, he is the whisper in the silence as we wait and the muse as we create.

Everyday, we will
Read – Reflect – Respond

Read the daily devotionals. Reflect and seek the Lord’s voice.There will be scripture, thoughts for devotions, videos to watch and music to soak to. Finally, Respond as you are led.

“Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.”
Psalm 84:5
