September 26 Bible reading

25 09 2019

September 26  Psalm 112  Ephesians 4:17-32; 5:1-7  Isaiah 63; 64; 65:1-16

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 26  Psalm 112  Ephesians 4:17-32; 5:1-7  Isaiah 63; 64; 65:1-16

Psalm 112

People who live in a loving relationship with God, constantly aware of God, showing God respect are seen in Psalm 112 as generous. God is faithful to His covenant agreements. Responding to God, faith-filled generous people are not overcome by evil in this world but live out of a confident hope that God will take care of them.

Ephesians 4:17-32; 5:1-7

Paul writes about our response to the love of God. This includes our searching out the ways that God has said would be healthy for us to live. We should make a decision daily to allow the Holy Spirit to renew what we are thinking and feeling. We should not be deceived by people who try to excuse sin. We should live like Jesus and share His love.

Isaiah 63; 64; 65:1-16

Our God is faithful. Since the beginning of time, no one has seen a god-like our faithful loving God. Faithful in forgiving the repentant and punishing those who refused to repent. God remained available to those who were not recognizing Him as Lord.
