April 28 Psalm 52 Luke 24:36-53 Joshua 13; 14

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 28 Psalm 52 Luke 24:36-53 Joshua 13; 14

Psalm 52

David sings about the benefits of trusting God completely and choosing to consistently be in God’s presence, with faithful people. He finds transformative moments and healthy lifestyle. There’s security, a sense of identity, and a sense of belonging. David makes a decision to love God with all his heart.

Luke 24:36-53

After resurrection, Jesus walks His followers through the Scriptures again. Jesus is teaching them, from Scripture, about the significance, the purpose, and the meaning of His death, burial, and resurrection. He is reminding them that His death, burial, and resurrection had been predicted (from prophecies recorded in Scripture). This is proof of His identity as Savior. The purpose that Jesus points to, for all of this is, “forgiveness of sins for all who repent”. Jesus clearly wanted his followers to remember His purpose. Jesus calls us to live for it. This is the starting point for all followers of Jesus.

Joshua 13; 14

As Joshua grew old, God promised to drive out the evil people from the land. God instructed Joshua to distribute the land to the Israelites, according to His instruction. At 80 years old Caleb was the last leader to request the land promised to him. When he completed his conquest the land finally at rest from war. The promise of this land was realized. 40 years from the days that Joshua and Caleb had first seen it. God was faithful to His promise. God responded to the people when they turned away from their sin and worshipped Him.
