June 27 Psalm 78:17-31 Acts 17:22-34; 18:1-8 1 Kings 18:16-46; 19

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?

June 27 Psalm 78:17-31 Acts 17:22-34; 18:1-8 1 Kings 18:16-46; 19

Psalm 78:17-31

God is patient, slow to anger, forgiving, and long-suffering. Yet He grew tired of Israel’s demands and their lack of trust in Him. People were insistent that God needed to take action. Yet they did not fully believe that he would. You can make fun of the people found in the stories of Scripture, but stop and think about it. Doesn’t this sound like human nature?

Acts 17:22-34; 18:1-8

In Athens, Paul walks around the city to learn about the people who lived there. He noticed the evidence of many forms of spiritual worship. He affirms the spiritual desire and awareness of their culture. Paul calls their attention to Jesus and explains the salvation available. In Athens and Corinth, a wide variety of people came to faith in Jesus following Paul’s teaching. His presentation of the Good News includes the truth of God’s design and purpose: that people of all nations, every ethnicity, live together in peace.

1 Kings 18:16-46; 19

The prophet Elijah confronted the evil king Ahab and his queen Jezebel. This included a public call for people to choose if they would worship Yahweh or their idol Baal. Elijah provided an opportunity for Baal and Yahweh to prove their power. The people present saw the power of Yahweh and chose to worship Him. The prophet runs for his life from the enraged king and queen. God calls the prophet out of hiding, to anoint new kings. God has a purpose for every day.
