Bible in 90 Days {#B90Days} ~ Week 13 Check-in

Bible in 90 Days- join in July 2010

After reading bunches on vacation this week and managing to stay on track, I’ve decided that I really like the book of 2 Corinthians. It may just be things that I’m going through at this point in life, but there were several things that just struck me while reading this week.

In 2 Corinthians 3, verses 6 and 17, Paul talks about the Spirit and the LIFE that exists where the Spirit of the Lord is. And where the Spirit is…there is FREEDOM.

A bit later in 2 Corinthians 4:7-9, I love the image of a ‘treasure’ being inside a jar of clay ~ and also knowing that:

“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.”

2 Corinthians 4:8-9

As of today, I have only four more days left until I am finished up with my reading, so I will be wrapping up my reading on Day 88. This is my second time having read the Bible from cover to cover, and both times were while following along with the Bible in 90 Days Challenge hosted by Mom’s Toolbox.  Amy will be starting the challenge back up again in January if you are interested in joining along.
