September 26 Bible reading

25 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 26  Psalm 112  Ephesians 4:17-32; 5:1-7  Isaiah 63; 64; 65:1-16

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

People who live in a loving relationship with God, constantly aware of God, showing God respect are seen in Psalm 112 as generous. God is faithful to His covenant agreements. Responding to God, faith-filled generous people are not overcome by evil in this world, but live out of a confident hope that God will take care of them.

Paul writes about our response to the love of God. This includes our searching out the ways that God has said would be healthy for us to live. We should make a decision daily to allow the Holy Spirit to renew what we are thinking and feeling. We should not be deceived by people who try to excuse sin. We should live like Jesus and share His love.

Our God is faithful. Since the beginning of time, no one has seen a god like our faithful loving God. Faithful in forgiving the repentant and punishing those who refused to repent. God remained availalble to those who were not recognizing Him as Lord.
