April 2 Bible reading

2 04 2019

April 2 Proverbs 8:22-31 Luke 9:10-27 Numbers 33; 34

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?

April 2 Proverbs 8:22-31 Luke 9:10-27 Numbers 33; 34

Proverbs 8:22-31 God is the source of wisdom and has been using it since the beginning. Proverbs 8:22-31 invites us to learn from considering this truth. God was exercising wisdom throughout the creation and design of all that we see. It is more important for us to recognize that God used wisdom in creation, than it is for us to debate how God created what we see. What kind of God is this? Certainly a God of greatest wisdom.

Luke 9:10-27 The love of God is seen in Luke 9:10-17 as Jesus teaches the crowd that followed Him, and then did a miracle by providing lunch for thousands. He served them all, including those who felt that they were “far from God”. Jesus prepared His friends for His death. In Luke 9:23-25, Jesus called His friends to follow Him by living a selfless life, with eternal perspective (a value system focused on what matters most).

Numbers 33; 34 In Numbers we see that God cared about His people learning from their past. God made arrangements for each family to have a place to live and a leader to serve them.
