In just a few short days, Salvationists from around the world will begin reading the New Testament together in a year as they celebrate The Salvation Army’s 150th year of ministry. The Boundless Bible Challenge, initiated by the General and Commissioner Silvia Cox, is given to encourage Salvationists to seek “the wonderful treasure that God has given to us through his Word.”[source]
The Boundless Bible Challenge is a daily reading – usually one chapter – from the New Testament every weekday with the weekend as a time of reflection, study, or catch-up. There are a number of great resources available at the Boundless Bible Challenge website, including discussion questions and additional material from The Salvation Army’s devotional publication, Words of Life.
You can also share your Boundless Bible Challenge experience through social media! Follow @BoundlessBible on Twitter and use the hashtag #BoundlessBible on your favorite social media applications.
On this blog, I will be posting a daily commentary on each of the Boundless Bible Challenge readings. Each post will have the full text of the reading available for easy access, a key verse from the passage, a short commentary, and a place for comments and discussion. Each daily commentary will be posted at midnight UTC and can be delivered directly to your mailbox by subscribing for e-mail updates (sign-up below). You can also follow me on Twitter for updates or visit biblechallenge.blakefewell.com for the latest posts.
The Boundless Bible Challenge begins Monday, January 5. I hope you will join me and other Salvationists as we explore God’s Word together.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
– 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (ESV)
