Finally starting to put some real miles on the ol’ gal, old faithful, aka my Bible. I decided to begin the 30/30 challenge in Matthew, to dissect the New Testament.
- For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 5:20)
What I’ve gotten from it thus far is that Jesus’ genealogy has been confirmed but His birth, though fulfilling the prophecy, does not excuse mankind from good behavior. In other words, just because He paid for our sins doesn’t mean we should go around getting our money’s worth.
How is your Bible reading going? I’d love to hear about your progress!
P.S: If you haven’t yet, sign up for the 30/30 challenge. It’s not too late!
