December 28 Bible reading

28 12 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.

December 28  Psalm 148:7-14  Revelation 19:11-21  Nehemiah 9:1-37

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?

We should throw our praise to God our Creator. The Almighty living God is worthy of our best praise. The day will come when every living thing will praise our God. Our weather conditions are at the command of our God. From the depths of the oceans to the height of the mountains, every living creature lives for God’s glory. Let us praise our God!

John sees an amazing vision of Jesus Christ in all His jaw-dropping glory at the time of His ultimate victory. Our Savior Jesus Christ is revealed as the “King of all kings and Lord of all lords”. Who is like Jesus Christ? There is none! In our future, Jesus Christ will bring defeat to the proud and grace to the humble. Jesus Christ our King will see ultimate victory over every opposing force.

Ezra and Nehemiah lead people in a return to their history and learning all that God had spoken to them. They are reminded of many miracles over hundreds of years, proving the faithful love of God. All the people came together for a solemn assembly of confession of sins and repentance. All together they praised God. They prayed, listing the many times throughout their history that God had been proven faithful despite their sins. They recalled the covenant agreements God had made with them and renewed their own promise to follow them.
