Read the New Testament in 72 Days
For the past few Sunday’s at church our pastor has been delivering a powerful message. It has been a sermon on walking with Jesus and believing in what he has in store for your life. It has been about seeking him, trusting in him, and understanding that God gave us Jesus so we could have a relationship with Him. In John 14:6 Jesus says,
“ I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. ”
What a powerful scripture. It’s short, sweet, and to the point. We can not get to Heaven without the love of Jesus. By accepting the salvation that God has given us through the blood of Jesus, we have an eternal home with Him. Shouldn’t we want to learn more about the man that died for our sins? We are called to be like Christ. How do we do that?
“ This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”
The answer is in Joshua 1:8. The scripture says we are to meditate on the word of God and to not let the word depart from us. To understand what God wants for us and from us we have to dive into the word and learn about Jesus’ works and learn of God’s love. We have to seek Him in everything. We have to grow into our full potential that God has laid into our hearts. The only way to access this potential is to grow by reading the word of God and applying it to your life.
Accepting the challenge to read the New Testament in 72 days will help you apply God’s love for his people and his compassion for those in need in your life, as well as help you grow into your full potential that God has already given you.
