September 15 Bible reading

14 09 2019

September 15  Psalm 107:23-32  Galatians 2:1-10  Isaiah 36; 37

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?

September 15  Psalm 107:23-32  Galatians 2:1-10  Isaiah 36; 37

Psalm 107:23-32

Psalm 107 repeatedly calls for praise to the God of faithful supernatural love. The Holy Spirit spoke to me through verses 7 and 30 with direction for our move to Baltimore. This is the reason we want to be a safe place for people to find and follow Jesus. Our God still responds to people calling for help out of distress.

Galatians 2:1-10

Paul refutes false teaching. He includes a description of his own submission to spiritual authority. The leaders of the church had identified people who were pretending to be Jesus followers. Peter, James, and John recognized Paul’s ministry, approved of the content of his teaching, and encouraged more ministry to the poor. It’s crucial for us to recognize this interaction now as people are trying to cut out Paul’s teaching from Scripture.

Isaiah 36; 37

Sennacherib, the evil king of Assyria, laid siege to Jerusalem and with arrogant defiance mocked the Israelites’ trust in Yahweh. Israel’s king Hezekiah turned to the prophet Isaiah, asking for God’s help. Our God had observed this evil king and rescued His people with specific miracles.
