What is 40 Days with Jesus?
Over six weeks 40 Days with Jesus
focuses on the 40-day post-resurrection period during which a number of key biblical figures had life-transforming encounters with the risen Christ. Each week, explore a different facet of life lived with Him. It is a resource suitable for churches, small groups and individuals. At its heart is an invitation to actively explore the accounts of the risen Jesus.
Why do the challenge?
40 Days with Jesus
is based around a particularly successful teaching series that KingsGate Community Church ran following Easter 2012. For nearly 20 years they had seen lots of guests come to their Easter services, many of whom had given or recommitted their lives to Christ. However, many more viewed this as a one-off event, and would wait to come back at Christmas or the following Easter! So instead of having Easter Sunday as a stand-alone celebration, it was earmarked as Part 1 of a series entitled ‘40 Days with Jesus’.
As they focused on Jesus not only did faith arise from the wonder of the resurrection, but the living Christ revealed Himself to many of them in fresh ways by His Spirit. Many people came to Christ, and many people came back to Christ. The hope is that many other churches will also experience this as they go on the 40 day journey.
