The title above may seem that struggles have hit the Harp household. While no one is perfect, and no one is free from strife, the title is not referring to this. I have challenged my- self personally this year - both physically and spiritually. The physical task has been brought on by a need to change eating habits and diet. As a result, my blood pressure and cholesterol are normal, and I am 35 pounds lighter. The spiritual test has come in the form of a “read the Bible in 30 days” challenge. As I write this, I just put the Bible down at 3:30PM on May 30th having completed the challenge. Both challenges have been difficult in their own ways, but complimentary in nature. The Spiri- tual challenge has helped the physical one. The physical challenge has given me the confi- dence and stamina to tackle the Spiritual one. Jesus faced His own challenge physically by fasting for 40 days. Satan tempted Jesus physi- cally with food but Jesus responded in a unique way to counter the temptation. “And the tempter came and said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread’” (Matthew 4:3). Jesus had fasted for 40 days when issued this chal- lenge concerning food. Who can fathom the temptation Jesus faced to eat? The way He ap- proached it is how all people should face Satan’s wiles: He countered the physical struggles He faced with the only source we have for Spiritual insight. The Word of God. “But he answered, ‘It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God’” (Matthew 4:4). He did not face the temptation with a personal resolve to overcome, or even with His own decision to fast as His reason. If Jesus responded with Scripture, you and I will do well to follow suit. He did not say, “I feel,” because we all know the hunger he felt would have distorted His feelings. He did not say, “I am going to go with my gut on this,” because His empty stomach may have interfered. David said it best, “I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you” (Psalm 119:11). When we respond to Satan with, “It is written,” we are harnessing the power of God’s name: I AM. With this being said, I am issuing a challenge to anyone who would like to join us. Starting to- morrow, will you join several of the office staff along with myself in a 90-day Bible reading chal- lenge? Please pray about this and take one of the 90 day reading plans in the foyer and if you would like you can check out one of the reader’s Bibles from my library. This is a special Bible with no distracting notes and headings. Verses are also removed for easy, novel-like reading with very subtle chapter breaks. Will you allow this to be a challenging year? A note from the Harp.
