The 4x4x4 Challenge

Okay, here is a challenge open to everyone. I am calling it 4x4x4.

The 4 Gospels

Read 4 Times

In 4 Weeks

It sounds simple, maybe even trivial, but if we are really going to be like Jesus, we have to know him. This challenge won’t bring us to a complete knowledge of Jesus, but completing this challenge will get us closer to really knowing him for sure.

The thought would be to get in the Gospels everyday. If you have to read 12 to 13 chapters a day to complete the challenge. It will be easy to think you can just catch up if you miss a day or two, and even easier to give up when you have 60 or 70 chapters to catch up on.

Let’s go for it. Let’s get to know Jesus even better. Or maybe for some of you, simply get to know him.

    count me in, bro. at first glance i thought you were crazy. actually, i just didn’t want to commit to something i couldn’t do. but it’s right where i am right now. i’m gonna try reading francis chan style – like someone who does not know Jesus. then look at my life and see if i’m living this out.
