Matthew to Revelation In Jan To Dec: Matthew 1

Hey Guys,

Like I brifely mentioned in a previous post, I will (along with my church) will be reading the New Testament, Matthew to Relevation this year.

I started January 1 and I finished the book of Matthew on the 24th, but I will be going over each chapter again and writing what I got or understood from each Chapter.

My brief understanding of Matthew 1:
- Matthew 1 starts off with the Lineage of Jesus Christ. It starts with Abraham who had Isaac and goes all the way down to Jacob who had Joseph, who became Mary's (Jesus' mother) husband.

- When Joseph heard that Mary was pregnant, he thought that she had been unfaithful and wanted to leave her. It wasn't until an angel of the Lord came and told him that Mary was pregnant with a child of the Holy Spirit and that His name will be called Jesus!

I could only imagine how Joseph was feeling around this time. First he finds out that his fiancee` was pregnant and it sure wasn't by him! And then to be told that it was a child of the Holy Spirit! That's a lot to take in.

God Bless!

God's Word!

Matthew 21: 22 (KJV)

"And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."

Faith. It is so very important when it comes to being a Christian. The Bible says, without faith it is impossible to please Him (Hebrews 11:6).
I believe that if I pray believing that my God is prayer answering God, according to His word I will receive it!

Making Time For Him-- Why Does It Seem So Hard?

It's been somewhat of a New Years resolution to learn more about God's Word. I don't like the feeling of reading my Bible to be like a chore that needs to be done and it's been feeling like that a lot since i'm reading through the New Testament this year, so a few chapters a day.

I tend to have my 'Bible reading sessions' as a checklist-- something to do and get out the way-- and this isn't helping me or pleasing God!

I'm working on setting aside an hour everyday to read and study the Bible. I really want this to work out as planned, because there is nothing I want more that to get closer and closer to God!

Happy 2011

First of all, Happy New Year to my readers...although I'm like 16 days late.

It's been nearly a month since I updated the blog. I'm not going to state excuses or anything, it's just that life happened.

I'm downsouth, in the beautiful state of Georgia and I'll be here for a while. It's really nice down here. It's probably about my 5th visit.

Anyway, things are still busy in my life, but I'm going to try and update reguarly regardless. In the meantime...enjoy your life, it's already 2011! Make the best of the time God has given you!
