E100 Challenge

Last week our church began participating in the E100 Challenge. The E100 Challenge is a nationwide campaign to encourage people to have consistent Bible reading time. The Challenge consists of 100 short Biblical passages, 50 from the Old Testament and 50 from the New Testament.

Although I’ve read these passages before, I’ve been surprised at how much I’m enjoying re-reading them. I’m noticing some details that I hadn’t noticed before. For instance, yesterday I read about God’s covenant with Noah in Genesis 9 to never again destroy the earth with a flood. Did you know that God not only made that covenant with Noah and his descendants, but with every living creature–including all of the animals–too? I’d never realized that until I read it yesterday.
These stories are giving me a lot to think and wonder about, which is always a sign of a good study, in my book. If I continue to read a story a day, I should finish in a little over 3 months. Not a bad way to start the year.
You can read more about the E100 Challenge and download a reading plan here. Has anyone else done or is currently doing the E100 Challenge? Are there any other reading plans that you’d recommend?

  1. Our church is doing the same thing. I hope to do it, haven't started yet though. I know it will be good for me. I really need His Word that's for sure. Haven't done enough or really any of that lately.
