August 15 Psalm 97 1 Corinthians 9:19-27; 10:1-13 2 Chronicles 2; 3; 4; 5:1

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?

August 15 Psalm 97 1 Corinthians 9:19-27; 10:1-13 2 Chronicles 2; 3; 4; 5:1
Psalm 97 Our God is king over all we see, and most powerful. Every believer in the One True God should praise His name and celebrate His goodness. Don’t do this casually. Reflect deeply on the truth that compels us to this daily practice. God is worthy of your praise and celebration!
1 Corinthians 9:19-27; 10:1-13 Paul has chosen a life mission of serving all people he comes into contact with in an effort to bring as many as possible into a relationship with Jesus as Savior. All of his life lifestyle choices are shaped by this decision. Paul warns of temptations that would draw us away from faithfulness to Jesus and into self-destructive priorities of gratifying our carnal cravings. We should learn from the lessons of the nation of Israel and their idolatry. Paul says that God will give us the ability to resist temptation.
2 Chronicles 2; 3; 4; 5:1 Responding to the directions given by God and his father David, King Solomon sets out to build a Temple for the worship of Yahweh. Engaging the king of Tyre, Solomon acquires resources and the help of master craftsmen. Solomon completed the Temple with everything needed for the prescribed worship, offerings, sacrifices, and celebrations.
