September 27 Bible reading

26 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 27  Psalm 113  Ephesians 5:8-33  Isaiah 65:17-25; 66

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

Psalm 113 calls us to praise the one true living God, who is more majestic than our sky and cares for the people who are in need. There is no one who can be compared to God. Let us praise the Lord.

We should carefully search out what pleases God. This pursuit should direct how we live. Filled with the Holy Spirit we will have the ability to live out of gratitude to God. As we have learned about God’s love for us (a love that gives) we can choose to live like Jesus and share His love. This becomes a life-shaping ethic. We live out this faithful, patient, kind love in our marriages because we are now constantly aware of Jesus. Love and respect are essential elements of such a marriage.

Our God will make new the earth and the heavens. There will yet be peace. Yahweh God will bless the humble of heart. In the end of our time, God will forgive the repentant, punish the rebellious, and draw people from all nations (ethnicities) into faithful worship, bringing peace without end.
