June 28 Psalm 78:32-39 Acts 18:9-28; 19:1-13 1 Kings 20; 21

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 28 Psalm 78:32-39 Acts 18:9-28; 19:1-13 1 Kings 20; 21

Psalm 78:32-39

Despite God’s miraculous provision the Israelites kept sinning against Him. Only when God brought severe punishment did they take Him seriously. Many times, He held His anger back. God remembered that they were human, with a short lifespan, and forgave them when they repented. We should understand that God’s mercy does not mean that our mistakes have no effect on Him.

Acts 18:9-28; 19:1-13

God speaks to Paul, in a dream, directing him to be brave in teaching the Good News. Paul obeys God and sees great results in Corinth for 18 months. His ministry partners Priscilla and Aquilla led the gifted Christian teacher Apollos in a growing understanding of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. This was an important subject to the leaders of the Christian church. Paul’s outreach combined persuasive public discussions with people who were just hearing about Jesus for the first time, with teaching believers, with prayer and miracles.

1 Kings 20; 21

We must not think that God is blind to what is happening on earth. The one true living God aware of the heart and actions of all people. God has thoughts and feelings about every life and about every choice. God is faithful, patient, kind, forgiving, slow to anger, forgiving, and long-suffering. Yet there will be a day and time when God will call into account every single person. We read here that God brings punishment on rulers, who led people into idolatry. There will be consequences for that kind of influence.
