The John Challenge
What is the John Challenge?
(The links to all the chapters are below)
It’s where you read and meditate on a chapter of the Gospel of John every day during the Fast. There are 21 chapters in total. You can start this challenge any day, but you need to follow along for 21 uninterrupted days until the last chapter.
Note that it’s not simply to “read.” You’re going to reflect on what you read. To reflect means to think about what you’re reading, to inquire, dive into the text, and especially take lessons for your life.
Just to help you out, I added the links to my daily reflections on each chapter. That doesn’t mean that you will be restricted to what I wrote. Remember that, the word of God is dynamic and through one verse it can say something totally different to you than to me. I also want to encourage you to leave a comment on what you learned while meditating on the daily chapter. Write your thoughts here on the blog. Surely, it will bless others.
Do you want to participate? So:
- Decide that your going to commit for 21 days.
- Start reading from John 1:1, read a chapter a day.
- Meditate on the reading. You should take 10 to 20 minutes a day to do this; choose a quiet place free from interruptions.
- Right after, visit this blog to read the message of the day and post your comment.
Now, what about inviting a friend to participate with you? This is something ideal for friends, kids, husband, wife, etc. Send an email to someone right now…
I suggest that you first read the chapter in your Bible, afterwards read my comments on that chapter, and then post your comment here on the blog.
