September 14 Bible reading

13 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 14  Psalm 107:10-22  Galatians 1  Isaiah 33; 34; 35

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

Over and over, God proved His love to be way beyond the norm. With jaw-dropping miracles, God took action for His people. Psalm 107 refers to these specific stories and calls us to praise God.

False teachers mentioned Acts 15:1 had been following the apostles’ church planting travels. They sought selfish gain by earning recognition. They taught a mixture of Jesus’ teaching and Jewish customs added to Moses’ teaching. This resulted in the twisted idea that salvation came by faith and works, and that we are “perfected” by good works. Paul writes to teach our freedom by faith in Jesus and to refute this perversion.

A respect for God, a constant awareness of, a reverence for God will be life-giving enriching strength to you, if you choose it. Then you will see God as seen in Isaiah 33:5-6. Isaiah communicates God’s response to people of all nations. We clearly see God as alive, aware, able, and active. God has plans. God gives us a free will and will hold us accountable for our choices.
