September 10 Bible reading

11 09 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.

September 10  Psalm 106:32-29  2 Corinthians 11:16-33  Isaiah 24; 25; 26

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

The Israelites failed to obey God completely. This allowed a temptation for them, that they could not resist, to cheat on God. Our God had created them, rescued them, and provided for them. And yet they had an affair with idol worship.

Paul is writing to protect the Corinthian believers from false teachers who seek to deceive them, turning their loyalty, for pay, to teach their own version of spiritual truth (that was self-serving). Paul recounts the ways that he has proven his pure motives and focus on Jesus, despite being persecuted for this faith.

Isaiah, the prophet, share the heartbreak of God at the required punishment for sin. This includes the negative results seen in our natural environment. The One True Living God will bring judgment on the evil spiritual and natural rulers of our earth. They will yet see a final punishment. Our praiseworthy God will be a refuge to the poor and distressed. A final feast will be available to people of all nations in their worship of God. We should worship our trustworthy God. Morning and night, our hearts highest desire should be to glorify the name of God.
