I hope you all had a fun and relaxing Easter weekend! I enjoyed being able to spend time with my family and getting to have delicious home-cooked meals again! More importantly though, I was able to spend some time reflecting on Lent and what Easter is all about.
I will admit that I failed to finish the entire New Testament for Lent… However, I did finish the gospels and am still determined to read all the way through Revelations. I will get there! I am currently reading Paul’s letter to the Romans, which I think is great summary of the gospel message.
I also love verse 21 in chapter 5 that says, “so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
I think that reading through entire books of the bible has definitely helped me to grow spiritually. So, even though Lent is over, I am still not giving up my goal of reading the whole New Testament!
