June 5 Bible reading

4 06 2019

June 5 Proverbs 14:5-14 Acts 2:22-47 2 Samuel 7; 8

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?

June 5 Proverbs 14:5-14 Acts 2:22-47 2 Samuel 7; 8

Proverbs 14:5-14 A person with faith in God can use guilt to turn them toward repentance and reconciliation. In turn they receive the forgiveness of God. This leads to a guilt-free peace-filled life. It’s possible to become deceived living by what seems right.

Acts 2:22-47 On the day of Pentecost, Peter explained the way in which the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus fulfilled prophecy and confirmed His identity as Messiah. Peter called the crowd to turn away from their sin and turn toward a life of following Jesus. This decision was to be made a public confession of faith through baptism. 3,000 people responded in the way that Peter directed. They then devoted themselves to learning Jesus’ teaching (through the 12 apostles), to the Lord’s Supper, to building relationships, taking care of each other, to prayer, and to regularly gathering in large public groups and small groups in homes. A new life of wholehearted devotion to Jesus and love for others was the immediate result.

2 Samuel 7; 8 Through the prophet Nathan, God promises to establish David’s rule as King and the influence of his future generations. A promise to bless all people had been given to Abraham. This carried through the genealogy of David and his descendants. King David did what was right and just for all people.
