Considering Jesus Challenge
Day 23, January 23, 2013
Instead of setting New Year’s resolutions this year, I decided to switch my focus off myself and think about Jesus instead. We’re already three weeks into our Considering Jesus Challenge, and God has been actively speaking and providing lots of insight to those of you who are participating. You can jump in any time if you’d still like to join the journey. Here’s the blog entry that started this whole thing, and gives the bigger picture of what we’re trying to accomplish:
I will try to update the blog each day so you can see how God is speaking, but if I’m not able to write a new entry, I will be sure to post a verse for the next day. Keep sharing your insights with all of us in the comments’ section below – it’s great to learn from one another!
Considering Jesus Challenge Passage for January 24, 2013:
The last few days I’ve fallen off the grid and have not provided my usual daily updates to the blog – I apologize for that. I’m traveling this week so I’ve fallen out of sync with my normal writing routine, but I’ll be back in full-force once I get settled again and regain some traction.
I had planned to save tomorrow’s passage until one of the last days of our challenge, but sometimes I just need a really ginormous view of Jesus, don’t you? I didn’t want to wait another week to focus on the greatness of Jesus – it helps to put my current challenges in a more accurate perspective. So, here’s tomorrow’s passage – a celebration of the coming Jesus:
“And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.’ And He who sits on the throne said, ‘Behold, I am making all things new.’ And He said, ‘Write, for these words are faithful and true.’ Then He said to me, ‘It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost.’ He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.”
