This year I’m trying to read through the entire Bible (and get up without hitting the snooze every morning). I’m using Robert Murray M’Cheyne’s daily Bible reading calendar. Ben Edgington has put together a great resource that has the readings all together here. So far I’m doing fairly well, at least on the Bible reading. The snooze button is still a common morning routine.

The other day my readings included both Genesis 3 and Matthew 3. As I was reading a simple fact struck me. In Genesis 3 sin is introduced into humanity. In Matthew 3 the solution to sin is revealed as Jesus Christ is baptized by John.

It was a very good reminder that I am to be dead to sin and alive in Christ. Where are you at?
