July 29 Bible reading

29 07 2020

July 29 Psalm 89:30-37 Romans 11:33-36; 12 1 Chronicles 6

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 29 Psalm 89:30-37 Romans 11:33-36; 12 1 Chronicles 6

Psalm 89:30-37

God remained true to His promise of faithful love and blessing, to David’s descendants. God may punish the sin and yet never stop loving His children. We see this in David’s story. God loves us. God guides us.

Romans 11:33-36; 12

Who can compare with our God, the One True Source of all Life? No one. Everything we see in the natural world was created by God and is intended for His glory. Seeking to understand this, as it relates to any created thing, will lead us to wisdom. Our reasonable response should be a lifestyle of wholehearted devotion (as described in Romans 12). One way to worship our Creator is to live every day for God’s purpose, from a place of gratitude. Another way to worship God is to learn how God wants us to think and be changed by it. We should be asking: How does God think? How should I be thinking about everything, as a result? In this way, we will find peace and purpose. It is not God’s desire that we are overwhelmed by the evil in this world, but that we see evil overwhelmed by good, with action. We should live out of authentic love seeking peace, being patient in trouble, and rejoicing in our confident hope in Jesus.

1 Chronicles 6

The worship of God is a priority. Here we read a record of who was responsible to facilitate the worship of God and to teach the Word of God. The organization of assigned responsibilities helped to ensure that the people would have a time and place for meeting with God. It also provided the people with spiritual servants and spiritual leaders “(servant-leaders”). It was (and is) a priority. Clearly, God cares about it. God instructed them with His own thoughts about it. God is constantly at work to facilitate the relationship with His people. We should respond with a value system of spiritual priorities.
