June 21 Bible reading

20 06 2019

June 21 Proverbs 15:11-20 Acts 14:8-28 1 Kings 8:22-66; 9:1-9

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 21 Proverbs 15:11-20 Acts 14:8-28 1 Kings 8:22-66; 9:1-9
Proverbs 15:11-20 No one knows your heart better than our loving God. When you are depressed you see something discouraging in every day. When your heart is happy you see something good to be discovered in every day. Healing for depression is possible. The Proverbs are full of wisdom from people who found this to be true.
Acts 14:8-28 Paul and Barnabas publicly preached the Good News of Jesus and brought healing miracles. They endured persecution. They appointed elders for the new churches being birthed. They reported back to the leaders who had sent them. Many lessons here. It should be the same today. It’s a road map for the Christian church going forward.
1 Kings 8:22-66; 9:1-9 God honored His commitment to His people and showed them His unfailing love. God responds to everyone who lives for Him in wholehearted devotion. Solomon’s prayer of dedication for the Temple carried repeated requests that God would hear the people when they repented and forgive them. God appeared to Solomon in response to his prayer, promising to be faithful as a God of mercy and justice.
