30/30 Challenge: Day 1

 

women's devotional bible #3030challenge

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!

  1. It’s going great! My main study is Samuel. David sure had his troubles, didn’t he? I’m kind of all over the place, because I read My Utmost for His Highest Morning and Evening Devotions with Oswald Chambers and read most of the scripture references he cites. I’ve read Utmost for at least 20 years, and it’s still new every morning. Isn’t it amazing how much better our day goes when we start out reading the Word? Sure makes a difference in how my day goes.

  2. That’s so true! I read the when people wake up and do manual work, they’re more likely to maintain a fitness/diet schedule. I think the same concept applies to reading the Word. It’s like coffee for the spirit. Thanks for sharing!
