April 29 Bible reading

28 04 2019

April 29 Psalm 53 John 1:1-28 Joshua 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?

April 29 Psalm 53 John 1:1-28 Joshua 15; 16

Psalm 53 God brings strength to those who are following Him. Our Creator is a God bringing mercy and justice. Those who reject Him will see consequences. Those who worship our Creator Redeemer will know the peace and joy of God living among them. God will ultimately restore them.

John 1:1-28 Jesus, the Son of the living God, existed before any human. Our Creator God is three in one, triune, always in perfect relationship. God the Father, God the Holy Spirit, and God the Son have been in constant dialogue throughout human history. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the one who brings light and new life. Jesus came to earth and offered to anyone who would believe Him (and accept Him) the right to become a child of God. Through Jesus, we can find the unfailing love of God.

Joshua 15; 16 The “Promise” Land is assigned to the various tribes of Israel as a provision from God through Joshua. God gives specific instructions so that no one is left out. Our God cares about healthy peaceful relationships and the practical necessities.
