February 27 Bible reading

27 02 2021

February 27  Psalm 27:1-6  Mark 9:33-50; 10:1-12  Leviticus 1; 2; 3

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?

February 27  Psalm 27:1-6  Mark 9:33-50; 10:1-12  Leviticus 1; 2; 3

Psalm 27:1-6

Despite being under attack, David chose to believe in God as his defender. I love this song! David found life-changing help from God. He responded by wanting to be in the physical place of spiritual worship. David had a heart for the house of God. He chose to publicly sing and shout his gratitude.

Mark 9:33-50; 10:1-12

Jesus reveals a contrast between human nature (in valuing some people more than others) and the ways of the Kingdom of God. Jesus says, “if you want to be great, serve everyone else.” Jesus suggests an openness to others. If you identify as a “Christian”, a Jesus-follower, then you must take into consideration the call of Jesus for us to all be “servants” of others, found in Mark 9:35. Jesus makes this sound even more important for leaders, in Mark 20:35-45. What does that look like for you? Jesus says that there will be punishment for those who would cause people who trust Him to fall into sin. Jesus describes the need for a willingness to take serious measures to avoid sin in our hearts. Toxic selfishness is dangerous. Jesus teaches about God’s purpose in marriage and His design for it to be a lifelong commitment. God’s agape love in marriage is an example of love and respect for all human relationships. Is our love for others faithful, patient, and kind?

Leviticus 1; 2; 3

In Genesis we read about creation and God’s relationship with humanity. In Exodus, we read about God’s redemption of His people from slavery and their new place of worship. In Leviticus, we read about their new manner of worship. How should we approach God? In Leviticus, we see that God gives Moses instructions for the natural and spiritual lives of His people. Expressing gratitude and seeking forgiveness of sins, from God, are essential parts of our spiritual lives.
