May 11 Bible reading

11 05 2019

May 11 Psalm 59:9-17 John 6:60-71; 7:1-13 Judges 12; 13

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?

May 11 Psalm 59:9-17 John 6:60-71; 7:1-13 Judges 12; 13

Psalm 59:9-17 At a time when Saul is trying to kill him, David sings about God’s protection. David draws strength from his relationship with God. This strength is spiritual and natural. It is very real throughout his whole person. It is a life choice and a life source.

John 6:60-71; 7:1-13 Jesus makes a specific point of asking His followers if they believe in His identity as Messiah. To Jesus, this was more important than their activities, more important than their ability to repeat the Scriptures, or their attendance to these gatherings. At that time, no one in Jerusalem had the courage to speak favorably of Jesus, confessing their belief in Him as Messiah.

Judges 12; 13 The pattern of the Israelites forsaking God continues. God sends a message predicting the birth of Samson, and calling his family to ensure that he would take a Nazarite vow. This meant that Samson was to dedicate his life to serving God.
