The New Testament Challenge has begun! We are about three weeks in to our 63 day challenge so far! That’s already one-third down and only two-thirds to go! And I have been so encouraged by many of you and your experience in God’s Word so far. Here are some paraphrased “quotes” that come to mind:
“This is the most I’ve ever read the Bible before!”
“I’ve never read the Bible before but I want to complete this challenge.”
“I’ve been struggling in my connection to God and I want to continue this challenge and get reconnected to God.”
“What? Jesus had brothers and sisters?”
“I’m seeing Jesus’ love for people and it’s making me fall in love with the person of Jesus.”
“I’m amazed at how God’s word seems to speak directly to situations in my life right now!”
The challenge to read the New Testament in 63 days is a big one! Congrats to all of you who are even attempting! I am really proud of you all. And if you’ve gotten behind, don’t give up! Hang in there! Just keep reading and don’t necessarily worry about catching up. The real value in not in keeping up but that you get the opportunity to interact with God’s Word.
So keep it up! And, as you have opportunity, let me know how you’re experience in the New Testament Challenge is going. Hearing your encouraging words is a motivation for me in keeping up with the challenge.
