My good friend Chette Williams, who serves as the Chaplin for the Auburn University football team, sent in some good news recently. On the second Wednesday of this month, students around the country will get together on their school’s athletic field to hear fellow students share their testimonies and challenge each other to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ. The Josiah challenge is based on the following:
The king stood by his pillar and renewed the covenant in the presence of the LORD–to follow the LORD and keep his commands, regulations and decrees with all his heart and all his soul, and to obey the words of the covenant written in this book.
2 Chron 34:31
I find that most folks who don’t have a connection to the FCA have never heard of the Josiah Challenge and that’s certainly understandable. According to Chette, this challenge is for students to: read the Bible; share the personal impact of the Bible; challenge each other to read the Bible; and challenge each other to commit to Jesus Christ.
Since 2004, more than 200,000 students have gathered to hear Josiah’s challenge and take a stand. You can go to www.FieldsofFaith.com to learn more about Josiah’s challenge and how you can help. You might also want to support the FCA in its overall mission. I can think of no better group to support than the FCA. It is taking the Gospel message to our young people and that’s good news!
