Matthew 26

Today’s reading is from the passion of the Christ – what is God saying to you as you take time to read and meditate on these passages?


PS there are two more chapters of Matthew to read. We’ll take those on Monday and Tuesday next week.  Saturday is -as ever- a day of grace (to catch up and consolidate the readings) and Sunday is a day of rest.

We’ll start Hebrews on Wednesday. Can’t wait :)

Matthew 24

is today’s passage.

Even if this passage is very familiar to you, why not take a break in today’s busy schedule and allow it to read you. What is God saying to you today – though the passage – about your ministry?

caught off balance

As I skimmed through today’s passage before posting – my eyes latched on the phrase

Jesus caught them off balance

Jesus modelled turning the world upside down – with his teaching and his deeds. What is he challenging you with today in Matthew 22?

looking ahead again

next week we’ll continue to work our way through Matthew

Monday Mt 22
Tuesday Mt 23
Wednesday Mt 24
Thursday Mt 25
Friday Mt 26

As usual Saturday will be a ‘day of grace’ (i.e. catch up and/or consolidation) and Sunday is a day of rest and we start November by finishing Matthew 27 (Monday) and Matthew 28 (Tuesday)

What next?

My suggestion is that we’ll take a look at the book of Hebrews during  November, and then towards the end of the month/early December we’ll move onto Romans, which I think will be pretty exciting! We’ll end the year by working our way through either the  Gospel of Luke or of John. If you have a preference then please let me know!

I should mention right now that I’m going to be on holiday while we read through Romans and almost certainly will have very limited internet access – or none. But I do hope you’ll all continue to encourage one another while I’m away.  The readings will be pre-posted.

a royal welcome

Jesus is given a royal welcome as he enters Jerusalem, and then goes on to teach some hard lessons

Matthew 21

Which of these teachings speak to you today? How are you to apply it -and live it out – in your own context?
