July 26 Bible reading

30 07 2019

July 26 Psalm 89:14-18 Romans 9:22-33; 10:1-4 1 Chronicles 1; 2:1-17

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?

July 26 Psalm 89:14-18 Romans 9:22-33; 10:1-4 1 Chronicles 1; 2:1-17

Psalm 89:14-18 Life changing healthy relationships with God and others is a result of “righteousness”. Justice, truth, and unfailing love you will see when you are in a relationship with God. Being aware of God’s presence brings happiness.

Romans 9:22-33; 10:1-4 Through the prophets, God had predicted His invitation to the Gentiles and giving the Israelites the opportunity to receive the Messiah, by faith. Some chose to relate to God by trying to keep the law and yet without faith. They couldn’t trust God. Paul shares the grieving of the Holy Spirit over this loss.

1 Chronicles 1; 2:1-17 God cares about every human life. We see this in genealogies. Setting the stage for the recording of the history of Israel, we read the redemptive narrative of God in the names listed. Adam and Eve, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Boaz & Ruth, and David each responded to God with faith. We must learn from this. We must not relate to God through the quality of our actions, but instead on the basis of His grace extended to us through our faith in Jesus.
