April 27 Bible reading

27 04 2021

April 27 Psalm 51:10-19 Luke 24:1-35 Joshua 11; 12

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 27 Psalm 51:10-19 Luke 24:1-35 Joshua 11; 12

Psalm 51:10-19

David confesses his sin of adultery and murder. He repents and asks God to show mercy. After asking God to remove his guilt, he seeks a restoration of the relationship with God and a refreshing renewal of his soul. David commits to singing praise of God and teaching others about God. This is a song David sang through his season of restoration. It helps to sing the truth.

Luke 24:1-35

Jesus’ resurrection from the dead brings proof that Father God accepted His death as payment to atone for our sin, and that Jesus is our Messiah, the living Lord. A couple of Jesus’ followers had heard the report of His resurrection and yet they were walking away from the city confused and discouraged. Jesus walks with them, asks them questions, and then opens the Scriptures to explain the proof of His identity as Messiah. Jesus is alive. Jesus points to the purpose of His death, burial, and resurrection. This includes new spiritual life, spiritual cleansing, forgiveness, and joy available to you.

Joshua 11; 12

Following the instructions of God, Joshua completed the military conquest that God had directed to punish the evil. It made a way for them to live in safety as a benefit of their worship of Yahweh.
