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.

    "In a world where love has “grown cold,” the Holy Spirit can use this forty-day journey to rekindle the much-needed testimony of His love. As His church has too often been led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ, these forty days can restore us to Great Commission living, empowered by Great Commandment love."

    "As a member of the Mission America Coalition for over twenty years, I still need constant encouragement to practice a Prayer-Care-Share lifestyle in my own life and neighborhood. Chris and Kathy have definitely encouraged me through their own personal commit-ment to this vision, and anything they write will get my attention and help me grow my own witness. I recommend this book to you for the same reasons, and trust that together we will see many respond in faith."

This tool will encourage the reader to first receive and then share God’s love. Extraordinary encouragement comes from reading and responding to 40 Days of Love."

    "This book will help lead believers into a lifestyle of prayer, care for others, and sharing of Jesus with people by showing how important it is that we love others. If we don’t feel loved by God, it is hard to share that love with other people. The next forty days will prepare you to receive His love so you can pass that on to others as a daily lifestyle."
