October 1 Bible reading

30 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.

October 1  Psalm 115:12-18  Philippians 2:12-30  Jeremiah 2:31-37; 3; 4:1-9

What’s the plain simple truth of the verses you read?

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

What should you do about that truth?

Regardless of our status, if we will wholeheartedly praise God, trust in Him, our God will bless us.

Paul writes a moving recommendation for how we should respond to the supernatural love of Jesus. God is working in us, doing things that we cannot, and we can choose to make an effort to demonstrate those changes. Every day we have an opportunity to live like Jesus and share His love. Timothy and Epaphroditus were examples of this.

God speaks through the prophet Jeremiah to the nation of Israel. They have been unfaithful, serving other gods, despite the fact that God had remained faithful to them. God counted the sins of the 2 tribes of Judah as worse than the sins of the 10 tribes of Israel. God called them back to restoration of relationship with Him. God promised them a return to their Promised Land. After generations of evil leaders, God promised to give them leaders after His own heart. God promises to one day draw people from every nation into worship. God calls His people to a change of heart.
