February 10 Bible reading

9 02 2019

February 10  Psalm 19:7-14  Matthew 26:47-68  Exodus 6:13-30; 7; 8

Please read the suggested passages, prayerfully consider them, and the questions below. My comments here may be helpful after those moments. The suggested daily reading is for 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 has been expressed through Jesus.

  • 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?

February 10  Psalm 19:7-14  Matthew 26:47-68  Exodus 6:13-30; 7; 8

Psalm 19:7-14  David writes a song about his personal relationship with God. He sings about the benefits of being an active learner of God’s Word. There was a greater value David placed on God’s Word, more than any other piece of literature or spiritual experience. David found God’s Word to be reliable, bringing joy, and bringing simple people to wisdom. David was seeking spiritual growth and personal life change by his use of the Word of God. David is seeking spiritual cleansing and a life where he is pleasing to God his Creator and Redeemer. My response to the Word of God must be respective of its value.

Matthew 26:47-68  Judas, one of the closest followers, betrays Jesus into the hands of those who wanted Him dead. Jesus feels the pain of this personal betrayal, rejection, false accusation, and violent opposition. The Jewish high council couldn’t find credible charges against Jesus. They demanded that He reveal His identity. Jesus confesses that He is the Messiah and predicts His future reign and return. They rejected Jesus as the Messiah. What a tragedy! My personal relationship with Jesus should grow to be unbroken and transformative, real every single day. Jesus was betrayed and yet He took in false accusation to give Himself as a sacrifice for my sins.

Exodus 6:13-30; 7; 8  God instructs Moses and Aaron to direct Pharaoh to free the Hebrew people. “Let my people go so they can worship me,” God says. God is always intentional about the relationship with His people. God was guiding people toward a Promised Land time and place where God would live among the people. Pharaoh rejected God despite miracles and supernatural plagues of blood, frogs, gnats, and flies. It is a mistake to reject God.
