What does God want us to do together that we can’t do apart?
Billions of people have never had an opportunity to see, hear, and respond to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Others have heard about Jesus, but have not yet responded. When Jesus completed his earthly ministry, he entrusted his followers with his mission. This mission should be greater than anything that has divided his church in the past.
40 Days of Love is a devotional to help Christians pray for, care for, and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with at least ten people in their sphere of influence over forty days—in a way that is beyond the norm. Each day’s devotion focuses on how you can experience God’s love and then express it in practical ways to those around you.
Be a part of this movement to bring the transforming life of Jesus into every community, every ethnicity, and every generation.
