The Vision

Amateurs make decisions based on their emotions, while pros make decisions based on their commitments

If you want an intimate and personal relationship with Jesus Christ, it’s important to base it on commitment rather than just feelings. In Luke 10, someone asks Jesus what they need to do to inherit eternal life. Jesus responds by asking what is written in the law. Within this text, you find what a commitment to God looks like:

He answered, “ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” “You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.” (Luke 10:27-28, NIV)

Tips & Tricks

Prayer, Bible, Exercise, Encouragement

The goal is to spend 50 minutes with God throughout your day. This can occur in one setting at the same time every day, OR you can spread out the 50 minutes over different times in different places. You could do all 50 minutes when you wake up, after work, or after the kids go to bed.

There is no one-size-fits-all approach. The best approach is a committed approach. Stay committed and see how God will change you in the next 50 days.

Media

Audio & Video Resources

Part 1

Going Pro in What Matters Most

Level up your spiritual game by spending 50 minutes with God every day! Ready to go pro in what truly matters? Commit to the challenge and witness the incredible transformation God has in store for you in just 50 days!

Part 2

How To Truly Love God Back

God loves His children deeply and desires to be loved by them in return. We can both express and experience this love by reading His Word.

Part 3

Learning the Power of Fasting & Sabbath

When we indulge less in the world, we can encounter God more. Today's message, from guest speaker Nate Ross, encourages listeners to meet God in moments of rest.

Part 4

The Secret to a Longer, Better Life

The way we treat our bodies can be a part of how we worship God. Satan loves when we disrespect and disregard our bodies, but God calls us to treat our bodies like a temple.

Part 5

How Simple Conversations with God Can Transform Lives

At The Crossing we desire for everyone to have an intimate personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Prayer is one of the ways we experience that relationship. God desires to meet us in every moment through prayer, and a conversation with Him.

Part 6

Living Out Jesus' Last Words

As Christians, we aren't just called to accumulate knowledge about our faith but to also be transformed by it. Today's message provides ways to apply scripture and God's teachings to our lives.

Part 7

The Power of Discipleship and Evangelism

This week, we learn the necessity of prioritizing commitment over emotions when it comes to discipleship. We also hear a testimony on the profound impact of spreading the gospel and preparing others for Christ's return.
