A 40 DAY LENT JOURNEY
Reading through the book of Matthew
WEEK 4: Matthew 16 – 20
Not everyone is going to be open or happy to initially hear about the good news of God’s love for them in Jesus, some will even become a little hostile about being spoken to about it. Nevertheless, Jesus declares that the enemy’s kingdom will not be able to hold out ultimately against the good news of God’s kingdom of love.
Read or listen to the Scripture.

Talk to God about what you just read and discovered or anything else on your heart.
Pray that our enemies will have their eyes and hearts opened to the good news of Jesus.
