August 27 Bible reading

27 08 2021

August 27 Psalm 103:13-22 2 Corinthians 1:12-22 2 Chronicles 29; 30; 31:1

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 27 Psalm 103:13-22 2 Corinthians 1:12-22 2 Chronicles 29; 30; 31:1

Psalm 103:13-22

No matter what, God’s love lasts forever. Those who worship God experience this benefit. Let us all choose today to praise God with the best of our energy. David sings, describing God as compassionate with our weaknesses. God’s love transcends what we see. God’s love will be enjoyed by those who respond to Him forever.

2 Corinthians 1:12-22

The Corinthian church, believers like us, have experienced difficulties including resistance to their faith in Jesus just like Paul and his team did. Paul writes to encourage their faith, teaching that God gives us the ability to stand firm in the faith. Pastor Paul (and his team) lived out their personal wholehearted devotion to Christ. Receiving the Holy Spirit is directly linked to the strength Paul writes about. They described receiving the ability to live like this from the Spirit. Today you can receive the Holy Spirit, as Guide, and the help that this Spirit brings. It’s not spooky. It’s real. It’s amazing!

2 Chronicles 29; 30; 31:1

The new king of Judah, Hezekiah, repairs the Jerusalem Temple and restores the worship of Yahweh immediately. Despite their problems, it was a priority to make a covenant commitment to the Lord in whole-hearted worship. The king then offered a peaceful return for the nation of Israel with whom they had been at civil war for many years. They enjoyed weeks of peaceful worship and feasting in a way that had not been seen since the days of Kings David & Solomon. Peace is the result of their worship.
