Considering Jesus 31 Day Challenge – Summary

Considering Jesus Challenge

31 Day Summary


Well, we did it!

31 days of our Considering Jesus challenge is done. I hope you had as meaningful a January as I did. I realized last night that this is the first “resolution” I’ve actually ever kept. Today we focused on Matthew 28:18-20 and I’ll have my thoughts on this passage posted in the next couple of days. Today is another travel day so I won’t have the chance to write, but I do have the time to be grateful for all of you who participated and shared your thoughts and insights.

Y’all were amazing! For now, I don’t think I’ll look at the Gospels the same way ever again. Putting Jesus into the center of the accounts which include him has been life-changing. And as Jesus said, “It is finished!”

If you’d like to take your own 31-day challenge to consider Jesus, the verses we used for the month are listed below. If you want a better understanding of how it all got started, see my post from 12.31.2012 entitled Ditching New Year’s Resolutions

Basically, we would read the passage for the day and then just sit with it. Rather than follow the characters in the stories, our focus has been on Jesus. What is Jesus doing? What is he teaching? Who is he? What can we learn about his character? I’ll have to admit, it was challenging to stay on Jesus’ side of things. It’s much easier to focus on the others and put myself in their shoes, but this journey was all about Jesus. I hope you enjoy your journey as much as we have!

Blessings for your journey,
Donna.
