<h2><font color= "FF8C00">Would spending 40 days of intentional reflection and journaling on the Gospel of Matthew be beneficial to your spiritual journey?</font></h2>
Matthew’s Gospel presents a rich and detailed narrative that presents a complex and multi-dimensional Jesus. Long teaching discourses are a hallmark of Matthew, including the famous Sermon on the Mount. These long teaching sections provide rich devotional material and it can seem as if Jesus is speaking directly to you. 40 Days with…the Gospel of Matthew, Vol. 1 covers the majority of Jesus’ Galilean ministry, while 40 Days with…the Gospel of Matthew, Vol. 2
Spending 40 days absorbing the Gospel of Matthew is an opportunity for an enriching and rewarding experience in just a few short weeks. While designed for individual use, this book is easily adaptable for use in small groups. Through daily study and reflection, you’ll open your heart to the Holy Spirit and listen for how the scriptures are speaking to you each day.
<h2>This devotional journal is designed to help you strengthen two things:</h2> <ul><li>Your Biblical Literacy – develop you knowledge of this book by immersing yourself in it for a season.</li> <li>Your Biblical Intimacy- move beyond knowledge and learn how to let Scripture speak to you each day.</li></ul>
When these two things are developed and practiced, we allow more room for our relationship with God, allow God to speak to us, and are drawn closer to God.
Dedicated, daily time reflecting on Scripture helps you grow in your faith and also helps to keep your daily life in a proper perspective.
Patterned on the ancient practice of Lectio Divina, or “praying the Scriptures”, the Scripture is our focus in this devotional journal. It was designed to help you create space for God to speak to you through the Scripture of the day. Listen to what God is saying to you through Mark’s Gospel.
Studying scripture in 40-day segments makes our study more manageable and perhaps more importantly, increases our ability to stick with it as a daily practice. If you haven’t done this kind of devotional before, I really think you’ll be amazed at what this kind of daily practice will do for you.
Be sure to look for other 40 Days with… volumes!
Make the decision to spend a little time with God’s word every day for just five weeks.
