August 23 Bible reading

August 23 Psalm 102:12-17 1 Corinthians 15:35-49 2 Chronicles 18:28-34; 19; 20; 21:1-3

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?August 23 Psalm 102:12-17 1 Corinthians 15:35-49 2 Chronicles 18:28-34; 19; 20; 21:1-3

Psalm 102:12-17

God, we are turning away from the mistakes of our past. We believe that You will respond. Exhausted and yet crying out for help from God the prayer of Psalm 102 recognizes God as powerful (and able to help).

1 Corinthians 15:35-49

After this natural life, we will join Jesus Christ, in His resurrection life. When Christ returns to earth, we will discover our new bodies strong and ready to live forever. Physical death will be no more. The victory of Jesus will be seen like never before. We will enjoy the presence of the glorious Jesus Christ. We will live forever. We will enjoy the perfect love of our God!

2 Chronicles 18:28-34; 19; 20; 21:1-3

As the prophet predicted, King Arab was killed in a battle that God had warned of. The king did not listen to the many words from the prophet of God but rebelled to follow his own way. King Jehoshaphat has brought the anger of God by helping the evil king Arab. Jehoshaphat called the people to fasting and prayer. God responded, causing the enemy armies to kill each other leaving a vast amount of resources for the army of Judah to collect. They didn’t have to fight their own battle. Despite this miracle, Jehoshaphat did not completely remove idolatry from Judah and again helped an evil king of Israel. God brought consequences again. We should learn to live by reverent respect for God, at all times. With faithfulness, let us live with undivided hearts. Let us love God with all our hearts and souls.
