26 03 2019

March 27 Psalm 37:32-40 Luke 6:37-49; 7:1-10 Numbers 22:21-42; 23:1-26

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?

March 27 Psalm 37:32-40 Luke 6:37-49; 7:1-10 Numbers 22:21-42; 23:1-26

Psalm 37:32-40 Looking to God for hope will help us live a peaceful life. We will find the protection of God. This memorable wisdom poem from David helps us learn how this works. For best results, we should daily choose to “travel steadily along his path”. In order to do so, we must be asking, “What is the way of God?” The followers of Jesus found this Way.

Luke 6:37-49; 7:1-10 Jesus teaches that we can choose to build our lives on the solid foundation of hearing His words and obeying them. Peace and strength are possible in this way. Choosing to believe the words of Christ can build faith and bring supernatural results. Jesus teaches by showing a contrast between people who follow Him and those who don’t. What should a follower of Jesus be like? Love, compassion, forgiveness, and patient understanding would be a few characteristics Jesus mentions. Jesus affirms people who choose to believe in His identity as Messiah and His spiritual power.

Numbers 22:21-42; 23:1-26 God grabs Balaam’s attention by allowing his donkey to talk with him. Despite Balak’s request for Balaam to curse Israel, Balaam responds by blessing Israel in obedience to God’s word. Balaam does not respond to the king’s command, for the sake of his own protection, but instead stays true to his commitment to only say what God told him to. He found benefit from obeying God.
