Revive Me, Week 40– A Year of Growing Stronger in the Lord
Take the 5-Star Challenge
The challenge comes from a quote and may change your life. It’s simple yet powerful. You can do it by yourself. You can do it with your family. You can do it with your ladies’ Bible class. You can create your own special team to do it with.
It will grow you. It will make an impact on those around you. If you want to make a difference in the world, this challenge is how you can.
Here it is:
“God’s Word…read it through, write it down, pray it in, work it out, pass it on.”
See how simple? And yet we know the Word is powerful and penetrating (Heb. 4:12). It’s so powerful it can keep young people on the path of purity (Psalm 119:9). It’s profitable (2 Tim. 3:16). It blesses those who hear and obey it (Lk. 11:28). It can make a difference in this dark world because the unfolding of it gives light (Psalm 119:130). It saves (James 1:21).
Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.

3. Continue it at least until the end of the year (12 weeks). Discuss with your team on Jan. 1st if/ how it made an impact. Compare notes.
4. Suggested text: Psalm 119
Psalm 119 has 176 verses. This equals 15 verses a week for the next 12 weeks. That is 3 verses a day (Monday through Friday). This passage covers multiple ways in which the Word of God can change our lives and the lives of those around us.
Read it. Memorize it. Live it.
