June 29 Bible reading

28 06 2019

June 29 Proverbs 15:31-33; 16:1-7 Acts 19:14-41 1 Kings 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 29 Proverbs 15:31-33; 16:1-7 Acts 19:14-41 1 Kings 22
Proverbs 15:31-33; 16:1-7 If we will approach God with humility, we will become more teachable and as a result, we will grow in wisdom. This helps us receive and respond to constructive criticism and correction in a productive way. God cares about our motives. Living in relationship with God every day will help shape our character for a healthy life.
Acts 19:14-41 In the multicultural city of Ephesus, Jews were revered as exorcists due to the popular belief, that only they were able to properly pronounce the name of the living God, and that exorcism relied on the correct pronunciation of the incantation. The sons of a priest learned a hard lesson when they tried to use the name of Jesus in an exorcism despite not believing in Jesus. Our God will not be used for personal gain. Our God has a clear understanding of who has a relationship with Jesus and who does not. This incident led many to faith in Jesus.
1 Kings 22 God did not allow the evil king Ahab to escape punishment. Jehoshaphat did some good making peace and yet he did not remove the pagan shrines. The cycle of idolatry continued. Our God makes covenant promises with grace available. In response, God is looking for wholehearted devotion.
