April 21 Bible reading

21 04 2021

April 21 Psalm 49 Luke 20:27-47; 21:1-4 Deuteronomy 33; 34

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?

April 21 Psalm 49 Luke 20:27-47; 21:1-4 Deuteronomy 33; 34

Psalm 49

Like a proverb, the song of Psalm 49 discusses the wisdom found in understanding the futility of choosing to trust in personal wealth instead of God, the Redeemer. Further, this song reveals an eternal perspective with the understanding that only God provides victory over death. We see this in the resurrection of Jesus from the dead.

Luke 20:27-47; 21:1-4

Jesus taught that we will live forever. He made it clear that God is sovereign over all humans who have ever lived. The identity of Jesus as Messiah carries significant truth. One day we will all recognize this. Jesus encouraged a courageous generosity with our finances given to the house of worship.

Deuteronomy 33; 34

Moses speaks a blessing over God’s people before he passes away. Moses knew God “face to face” while he walked on this earth, in a way that no one else has since. God cared for Moses, even his physical needs. What a relationship he had with the living God!
