April 18 Bible reading

17 04 2019

April 18 Proverbs 10:1-10 Luke 18:31-43; 19:1-10 Deuteronomy 29; 30:1-10

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 18 Proverbs 10:1-10 Luke 18:31-43; 19:1-10 Deuteronomy 29; 30:1-10

Proverbs 10:1-10 People with wisdom are happy to receive instructions. Our God provides for the needs of those who love Him. Integrity guides people into a healthy and safe lifestyle.

Luke 18:31-43; 19:1-10 Jesus predicts His own death, burial, and resurrection. The predictions that Jesus provided were very specific. This is further proof of His identity. Jesus responds to faith by healing a blind man and giving him sight. Jesus made personal connections with people of all sorts and did not presume what they wanted from Him. Zacchaeus had become a wealthy tax collector by cheating people. Jesus’ love brings a complete change of heart, salvation, and an identification of faith like Abraham’s.

Deuteronomy 29; 30:1-10 God offers the Israelites a covenant relationship with specific terms, blessings, and possible consequences. God offers His love, provision, and blessing if they will turn to Him with all their heart and soul. Our Creator’s compassionate wisdom prompts His instructions to us. We’re given an opportunity to hear about a beneficial way to live.
