June 19 Psalm 75 Acts 13:13-41 1 Kings 6; 7:1-22

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 19 Psalm 75 Acts 13:13-41 1 Kings 6; 7:1-22
Psalm 75 Even if it seems that our world is falling apart, there is stability found in a relationship with God. The one true living God is in control of all that we see. Asaph saw that defiance was futile. Asaph led people in singing about a God who is above and beyond all that we see and yet is near to us.
Acts 13:13-41 Paul unpacks the message of salvation in describing Jesus as the Messiah predicted, a descendant of King David. Paul taught that through faith in Jesus forgiveness can be found. In Jesus, a redemption was now available like never before. Paul recognized that Yahweh our Creator had brought our Redeemer Christ Jesus to earth. God made a way for us to receive forgiveness and new life. This is a life-changing realization.
1 Kings 6; 7:1-22 With great care, King Solomon follows God’s instructions in building the Temple. After he completes the Temple, Solomon built himself a palace and facility for the government. All of this was meant to serve the people as they served God. With good stewardship and great care, an inspiring place of worship was made available to the people.
