Are you up for a challenge in January to start 2020 with clear vision?  Challenges take effort, focus, intensity and sacrifice but healthy challenges are life changing.

The New Testament is a life changing book.

You can read the entire New Testament in 30 days. That’s what I’m doing. I started on December 30th.

I haven’t read this much Bible in daily sittings in much too long.

Here’s the first benefit I’ve experienced. Even reading at a quicker pace than usual, I’ve absorbed facts about Jesus. His birth, baptism, testing in the Wilderness, his core messages on the Mount, first miracles, sending out the 12, key parables, feeding 9,000 pe0ple, teaching Peter to water on water, his rebuke of Peter and the prediction of his death.

New Thru 30

The New Thru 30 reading plan takes you through the entire New Testament in 30 days. This plan will stretch your mind, heart, and will to continue with an intense pace of Bible reading.

You say, “Uh-oh. It’s January 2nd (or later) and so I can’t finish the program in January, so I won’t start.”

You must be a  perfectionist (or something worse, but I gave you the benefit of the doubt). Start the plan. Now. It’s never too late to do the right thing. This is the right thing to get you on track in 2020.

4 reasons why reading the New Testament will be a priority you won’t regret setting.

1. The Word of God is your ONLY offensive weapon to win a spiritual war.

2. When you know the Word of God, what you are doing is programming your paradigm with the promises of God.

3. You need to know the whole counsel of God’s Word (not just a verse here and there). Reading the entire New Testament in 30 days will be the best gift you give yourself this year.

4. It’s not just something God is doing in you – it’s what He’s doing over time through you.

So good so far.
