Share Your 21 Days of Elevation Stories

Share your stories of how your life was elevated during the fast

DAY 21- Easter Series: RISE

21 Days of Elevation – DAY 21 Easter Series: RISE

John 14:5-6 “Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Like Thomas, the world is asking the same question some 2000 years later “…and how can we know the way?” Centuries after Jesus walked the earth, men are still seeking truth, love, relevance, meaning, purpose and acceptance in all the wrong places and for all the wrong reasons.

Jesus declared emphatically in the preceding text that He is “…THE Way, THE Truth, and THE Life. When we discover Jesus we discover the answers to life’s toughest questions, fears and concerns. Jesus ALONE is THE Source of all lasting joy and fulfillment.
AS we conclude our 21 Days of Elevation Fast, my prayer for everyone who will experience the RISE series is that they will come to KNOW Jesus so they can KNOW true Peace. Because when we say NO to Jesus we’re actually saying NO to His Peace…
