The Like Jesus Challenge

The Like Jesus Challenge

the like jesus challenge, attitude, heart

So, you’re wondering… what is this crazy challenge you are talking about girl? Maybe you aren’t; maybe you’re just trying to figure out how to get off this page. Since, you are, indeed, reading this, I am going to share a little about this challenge.

We as people, can sometimes act like total, well, humans. For me, I can catch myself with an attitude, getting a little angerier than I should, or getting jealous.  And trust me when I say this, people will notice. Our ultimate goal is to look in the mirror and see Jesus. If there are parts that do not belong or do not look like Jesus, we need to cut it out of our lives. God wants us to be his masterpeice. There are so many things that God wants us to work on.

I’m going to name off a few things that God wants us to work on. If you see any of these in your life, then I want to challenge you to do this challenge with my friends and I.

Do any of these attitude related sins apply to you?

  • Comparing ourselves to others
  • Lying, cheating, and lust
  • Anger, resentment, and unforgiveness
  • Jealousy, bad attitude, and impatience

Now I’m sure at least one thing on that list is something that is floating around in your life, making circles around your heart. I know there is a lot more things I could have listed, so if you can think of something else that you struggle with, that is all the more reason to take on this challenge. I suppose I should tell you what the Like Jesus challenge is, huh?

I was needing an attitude adjustment

One day at work I was think of ways to fix my whole attitude (which involves quite a few things on that list). I needed a lot more than an attitude adjustment. I came across a picture online that was challenging people to go day by day to change how they look at themselves. One day may be looking in the mirror and saying 5 things you love about yourself, while another day may be to go outside and get active. It was a week long challenge with a new activity for you to complete everyday.

I loved the idea and it really got me thinking. After lots of thought and prayer, I came up with the ‘Like Jesus’ challenge. I started sending a challenge to my friends and posting on facebook about it for anyone that wanted to join me. All it is, is doing simple, short activites daily to help you in with any attitude related sins like I listed above. Some days are more challenging than others.

There are a few important things that you need to remember while taking this challenge

  • You need to be reading God’s word and spending time with Him every single day because ultimatley, there is no amount of good deeds or attitude adjustment challenges you can do that will change your heart the way God can through His word. Reading the bible is a must with this challenge. If you are a christian, you should be doing this anyways. So if you are not, you need to start. (If you don’t know how or where to start, email me icametoworship@gmail.com.)
  • I will most likly be posting one new challenge a week, rather than daily. So your job is to make sure you do that throughout the week. The goal at the end of this, is that you start doing the challenges on your own, naturally. You should just wake up and be like, I need to call my friend and pray for them. I should thank my mom for being awesome today. Today while I’m at work/school, If I think something mean about another person, I am going to think of 3 good things that I like about them. You should get to a place where you don’t need the challenge anymore because your heart is changing so much.
  • Since I will only be posting one challenge a week, you can redo past challenges or make your own through out the week. You should be doing at least one a day. When all else fails, learn scripture, if you can’t find or thing of a challenge for that day.
  • Email me if there is anything that you need!

Are you ready to take the Like Jesus Challenge?

Do you want to take this challenge? Lets have a heart and attitude change together so that we can make a difference for Christ. Changing your heart and attitude will help you in more areas of your life than one. It can help you in your relationship, in arguements, at work, in school, etc. So this will really help you in more ways than one. Take this Like Jesus challenge with me, I dare you. Even if you think your attitude and heart is in a good place, these challenges will help you in your walk as well. Good luck; I will be posting the first day very soon!

Random Acts of Sharing the Good News

When I see someone do something nice for someone else, it absolutely warms my heart. I worked in a drive thru for three years and every so often, someone would hand me money and tell me to use that to pay for the persons meal behind them. Although it’s just a small act, it can turn someone’s entire day around. It would definitely alter my bad mood.
I love the thought of doing something nice for someone but one time changed my whole perspective on Random acts of kindness. Most people leave money taped to a vending machine or pay for the meal/groceries for the person behind them but one time, I was privileged enough to see something more than just an anonymous donation towards some food.

4 lies I believed as a new Christian

Being a new Christian can be overwhelming. You get to watch your entire life do a 180. Sometimes it can be scary because it’s something you’ve never done before.More often times than not, a new believer can get caught up in the wrong mindset. Maybe we think these things because of watching other ‘christians’ or maybe it’s just something we think. Let me tell you a few things that I believed as a new Christian just in case you are in the same boat as I was.

Slow Song: Jesus I Come by Elevation Worship

By March 1, 2017 Youth Worship
Jesus i come lyrics chords start worship band

Jesus I come

I remember the first time I ever heard this song. I was driving to Michigan for Christmas and every single word just spoke joy into my heart. Ever since then, I have been begging for our worship team to do ‘Jesus I Come.’ We actually just learned it this past Sunday and will hopefully be playing it this Wednesday. I love both the chords and the lyrics to this song. My absolute favorite part of this song is the bridge.

Lyrics

Verse 1:
Oh how I need Your grace
More than my words can say
Jesus I come Jesus I come
In all my weaknesses
You are my confidence
Jesus I come Jesus I come
Chorus:
I will rise stand redeemed
Heaven open over me
To Your name eternally
Endless glory I will bring (oh)
Verse 2:
Oh what amazing love
We need Your cleansing flood
Jesus I come Jesus I come
In every broken place
You are my righteousness
Jesus I come Jesus I come
Bridge:
Thank You Jesus
Just as I am I come
Hallelujah
Oh what amazing love

Why I love the bridge

The reason I love the bridge is because it says just as I am I come. It focuses on the fact that we don’t need to be perfect before we start following Jesus. We don’t have to have it all together because are savior has it all together. Jesus doesn’t want us after we have been a Christian for a certain amount of years. He doesn’t want us after we do a really good deed at least once a week. He wants us as we are. Jesus wants us in our brokenness. You don’t have to wait to put the pieces back together before coming to Him. Wanting to put the pieces back together is what He is wanting to do.

So when it says “Just as I am I come” it instantly brings tears to my eyes. A great and almighty God wants me. He wants my filth, so He can cleanse me. He wants my brokenness so He can fix it.

The entire song, overall was well written and makes for an amazing worship song. For the chords to this song, Subscribe below.

Slow Song: You Won’t Relent by Jesus Culture

you won't relent lyrics

You Won’t Relent

I love this song. The first time I heard it, I fell in love with it. The words are just so astounding. There are 4 different parts to the song and they are all amazing.
This is one of my favorites to do with the youth because it is such an emotional song. I could do this song every single Wednesday because it’s that good but most Wednesday’s we don’t have a drummer. My boyfriend says that this song needs drums or else it won’t have the dynamics it needs to sound phenomenal. This song has a lot of quiet and an equal amount of loud parts to it. There are a lot of builds and a lot of drops. So if you’re going to do this song, drums are recommended.

What are you waiting for?

what are you waiting for time is precious

Procrastinating

Before I was a Christian, all I did was wait and procrastinate. I wanted to be a Christian, I wanted to read the Bible, and I wanted to go to church. But what was I waiting for? What are you waiting for?

Every time I passed a duration in my life that I was potentially “waiting for” to get started,  I just came up with a new one.”I have enough books to read right now, I’ll read the Bible after I graduate.” “Sundays are a no go for me, I’ll wait until I have a car so I don’t have to bother anyone for a ride.”

Set A Fire by Will Reagan

Set a fire is another one of our go to songs. It’s a song we have done a bunch of times. The thing about doing songs like this over and over is sometimes people can become numb to what they are saying. They will just sing it and not think about the words coming out of their mouths.

You Can’t Read Your Bible Enough

Reading the bible is one of the most important things you can do as a Christian, as long as you’re doing your best to live it out. It’s something that brings you closer to God while it changes your heart and attitude. The more you read it, the more you learn. Trust me, you can’t read your bible enough. You use what you study through out the day and watch how God uses your new biblical knowledge to enrich your daily life. You are suppose to take up our cross daily and spend time with Him as much as we can.
