It is the first day of October, and the first day of the October monthly challenge: Sermon on the Mount month! Are you in?
The Task: Read Matthew chapters 5,6 & 7 every single day for a month.
The Why: I shared the why of this challenge when I announced it last week. Basically, I believe that the Sermon on the Mount is radical and challenging, that God's economy of love and redistribution and reconciliation is powerful and relevant and...beautiful. I want the red letter words of Christ to shape me and change me.
The How: I'm not a super disciplined person, so I need to make little rules for myself in order to make God's word the priority it ought to be. Like not allowing myself to use facebook in the morning until after I've read the scripture passage.
Many of you have expressed that you will be joining the challenge. Yay! Please feel free to come back to this post throughout the month and share how the challenge is going, what you are noticing in God's word that you've always seemed to miss in the past, what you are struggling with or convicted of or inspired by. May the Spirit of God move boldly in each of us this month!
