DAY 7: Cross Examination
Begin wearing a CROSS today, or another Christian symbol, if you
haven't been already. Wear it throughout the 40-Days as a reminder
of the spiritual price that was paid for you. We are in a life and
death battle. Many of our friends are deciding whom they will serve.
Many do not even know they are making this choice. During The
40-Day Challenge you will have opportunities to explain
what this spiritual battle is all about, and expect to have many
opportunities to tell others about Jesus Christ.
My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?…
- When you see someone wearing a cross, ask them why they're wearing
it. It's a great spiritual conversation starter. Their response
will provide a lot of insight into their spiritual life. If they
give you a flippant reason for wearing the cross, for example,
"it looks pretty" or "it's just a piece of jewelry",
etc., ask them if they know that the cross was introduced as a
form of capital punishment during the Roman Empire. Therefore,
it's like wearing an electric chair around your neck. That will
give them a lot to think about and hopefully lead to a meaningful
conversation about Jesus Christ.
Wear your cross today and throughout the 40-Days. If you see someone else wearing a cross, ask them about it. Speak of the spiritual battle.
