CHALLENGING CHRISTIANS

Christian Challenge Ministries started in the 1990s as a weekly radio program designed to challenge the typical American Christian to achieve deeper spirituality and greater exploits for Christ. Later, we began using a monthly newsletter, The Christian Challenge, as the medium to carry our message of Christian discipleship. 

That message can be summarized in a nutshell: Glorify God in every aspect of your life, because you are His and not your own.

He said to them, “If any of you has a sheep and it falls into a pit on the Sabbath, will you not take hold of it and lift it out? How much more valuable is a person than a sheep! Therefore it is lawful to do good on the Sabbath.”

Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other. But the Pharisees went out and plotted how they might kill Jesus.
