60IN60 Day 1 - Mon Nov 5

It's Day 1 and we're in Matthew 15.  For our new additions, we're starting in halfway through Matthew because we read the first 14 chapters in the previous round.

Welcome to the new round of 60IN60.  One change you may have noticed already is that this looks a little different.  In previous rounds, I have simply sent an email.  This time, we're working 60IN60 through a blog.  This will help me to be able to handle things more efficiently.

Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 3 - What do I do because it's my tradition that keeps me away from where God is leading?

- Verse 23-24, 26 - That's harsh!  Why does Jesus speak so rudely to her?  Essentially, during His earthly life, His mission was to attempt to draw Israel back to God.  When that failed, in Acts we see the gospel being opened up to Gentiles (non-Israelites).  Right now, there were lots of good things Jesus could have done, but He was trying to stay focused on His mission to Israel.  In the end, the woman's great faith caused Him to be willing to make an exception.

If you want to read the chapter online, here's a link.
