February 14 Bible reading

13 02 2019

February 14  Psalm 21:8-13  Matthew 28  Exodus 15; 16

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 14  Psalm 21:8-13  Matthew 28  Exodus 15; 16

Psalm 21:8-13  David has been called out of his hometown by the prophet Samuel, to be king of the Israelites. David obeyed the call of God and then faced violent opposition, multiple times. God is all-powerful. David was an eye witness to God’s victory over violent rebellion. No one can defeat the living God. We can join David’s celebration of God’s victories.

Matthew 28  Just as predicted, Jesus rose from the dead and walked among people for 40 days proving that He is alive. Father God accepted the death of Jesus as our once-and-for-all sacrificial payment for the atonement of our sins. The resurrection of Jesus is living proof of that fact. Jesus is alive. Before returning to Father God, Jesus commissioned His followers to urge people (of all ethnicities in all nations) to also become His followers. Jesus assured them that He would be with them spiritually every day and that He would return to the earth in body, one day.

Exodus 15; 16  Moses and 600,000 Israelite families sing their thanksgiving to God for their freedom from slavery. “With your unfailing love, you lead the people you have redeemed.” “The Lord is my strength and my song.” They sang about Yahweh’s sovereign control and powerful love. David learned from this song and we should too. God provided water, bread, and meat to eat for so many families now in need. There is nothing too hard for our God.
