March 30 Bible reading

29 03 2019

March 30 Psalm 38:13-22 Luke 8:1-18 Numbers 27:12-23; 28; 29:1-11

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 30 Psalm 38:13-22 Luke 8:1-18 Numbers 27:12-23; 28; 29:1-11

Psalm 38:13-22 David writes a song, asking God for protection and help now that he has turned away from his sin and toward God. We read a great example of how to confess and turn away from sin, in David. The honesty here can help us learn what we should do with our sinful mistakes. Reading about the life of David and considering his own words can bring us understanding about how God responds to humility.

Luke 8:1-18 Joanna, Susanna, and Mary Magdalene, were women who found healing and freedom in Jesus. They used their significant financial resources to provide for the ministry of Jesus. Jesus instructs us to respond to the Word of God by receiving it with faith, taking care to protect the process of our response to it, resisting our enemy’s attempt to attack this, and choosing to not allow our own cravings or worries to crowd it out.

Numbers 27:12-23; 28; 29:1-11 God chooses Joshua as the next generation leader of His people. God brings reminders of His instruction for their seasons and festivals of worship. With faithful love God makes a way for them to be reminded of His provision and receive the benefits of giving thanks.
