Reading Mark’s Gospel right after finishing Matthew’s showed how both men approached their accounts differently. Mark’s is shorter and focuses more on Jesus’ ministry, while Matthew gives more details regarding Jesus’ birth and childhood. Just like listening to two different people who were witnesses to the same event, both writers give us a unique perspective on the life of Christ.
If you are a part of the 90 Day Challenge, keep up the good work! Now that we are a couple of weeks into it, hopefully you are hitting your stride and are finding a good time in your schedule to carve out time to spend time with God. We’ve used this phrase throughout the month of January as we have talked about the habits that help us to grow spiritually: We are made up of the commitments that we make over our life and the habits that we develop. The 90 Day Challenge is designed to help us develop the habit of spending time with God. Keep it up!
This weekend, we also handed out two more books. Not sure how many are completing the challenge, but we have handed out nearly 70 books. If you are taking the challenge, we’d love to hear from you. Go to out 90 Day Challenge Facebook page and let us know how it is going.
