Challenge 4: Life & Death

Today you receive the last challenge of this month. We would love it if you would let us know what you think of these challenges and if we should share them more often. You can do this by sending us a message through one of our social media channels, you can email us or you can contact us via the chat button (the chat button is in the lower-right corner of the screen).

It is Autumn 2020. The worst flooding in about 15 years hits Cambodia. The harvest is destroyed, houses and roads damaged and many people drown. Noeng – a Cambodian Alongsider – sees his friend being taken away by the water. He knows that his friend cannot swim and thus he quickly jumps in the water. They both are taken away and Noeng helps his friend stay above the water. Others come to help and quickly pick one up. They continue to look for Noeng too and a little while later he is found. Dead. He couldn’t swim either. He drowned. Noeng gave his life to save his friend’s life.

Life and death

In this microCHALLENGE, we share this true-story with you to become part of it, and ask yourself the question, “What do I live for?”. For what or who are you willing to lay down your life? For who can you be a ‘Noeng’? Maybe like Noeng in dying for someone, maybe in a different way. But who do you reach out to? We challenge you this week to pray this prayer every day, “Who Lord should I reach out
to?” Noeng is a beautiful example of this and mirrors His Lord Jesus.

Challenge accepted?

To help you with this challenge, we are sharing a link to our discipleship course. Pray that God will put people on your heart who you would like to invite to join this course.

Now if you find this difficult and don’t know exactly what and how to pray to God for strength to share the gospel, you can follow the 7 day Bible reading plan on Sharing the Good News

We hope these challenges have been a blessing to you and they have brought you closer to God. Please let us know if you would like us to share these challenges with you more often.

This challenge is the result of a collaboration between GlobalRize and Alongsiders.
