March 24 Bible reading

24 03 2021

March 24  Psalm 37:10-20  Luke 5:17-32  Numbers 16:36-50; 17; 18

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 the 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?

March 24  Psalm 37:10-20  Luke 5:17-32  Numbers 16:36-50; 17; 18

Psalm 37:10-20

God will provide for those who love Him. People who have bad intentions shown through their actions will be ultimately punished. If you’re facing a challenge from such a person, it is temporary. The love of God is better than anything in this life, even if you are poor. The Lord will take care of you. There is a reason for hope. This important Psalm is helpful (in its entirety) for considering such truth.

Luke 5:17-32

Jesus heals a man who could not walk as proof that He could forgive sins. This was a documented supernatural creative miracle (seen as one of the proofs of Jesus’ identity as Messiah). The people who witnessed it thought it was important for you to read about it. When we are facing an insurmountable challenge, we should pray. At that moment, we should remember just how powerful the miracle that we have already received is. We have received forgiveness of sins. When we pray for the new challenge, we should remember what God has already done. Our faith will rise. Jesus calls Matthew to follow Him. Jesus enjoys a meal at Matthew’s home with his friends. This personal time is also important. Jesus has been sent by the Father for people who know that they are far from God and need to repent of their lifestyle.

Numbers 16:36-50; 17; 18

Moses and Aaron stood in the way of God’s punishment on people (who had complained about them), pleading God for mercy. God acted supernaturally to establish the spiritual authority of Aaron and his priesthood. The Levites were instructed to give offerings (first fruits, the best of, and a tithe of the tithe) to the priests as unto the Lord. The presence of God among His people was to be seen as the most valuable of all. For each person, this should be approached with dedication, devotion, and loving respect.
