August 31 Bible reading

30 08 2018

Each day of the year I’ll post verses to read, with the purpose of reading through the whole Bible within a year.

Reading the Bible is helpful in taking next steps to follow Jesus. It may not be easy and yet it can be rewarding. Digging into Scripture alongside people you know is a life-giving way to pursue answers together. We discover the love that God has for us, expressed through Jesus.

Please read the verses below, prayerfully consider them, and then my comments may be helpful after those moments.

August 31  Psalm 104:31-35  2 Corinthians 4  Micah 1; 2; 3; 4

Based on today’s reading, what is one thing God is saying to you?

With wholehearted worship. we should sing a desire to see the eternal glory of God. “The Lord takes pleasure in all He has made”. This helps us understand and respond to the character of who God is. Paul and his ministry team invited the Corinthian believers to a life more focused on the spiritual than the natural world we see. They lived for the message of Jesus. Their own weaknesses were seen as evidence that the power they had, came from God. They persisted despite persecution for the sake of the ever-expanding Kingdom of God. In this way, they found their spirits being renewed despite the deterioration of their aging bodies. Our God had proven that His love was faithful and that His words were reliable. Yet the people He created and redeemed spent years rejecting Him in favor of worshiping objects they had created with their own hands. They brought pain into their own homes & neighborhoods, and civil way to their land. God shows Micah that He is aware of their hearts and has seen their evil actions. We must live in an awareness that God is alert and active, paying attention to us with care for how we live.
