September 27 Bible reading

27 09 2021

September 27  Psalm 113  Ephesians 5:8-33  Isaiah 65:17-25; 66

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?

September 27  Psalm 113  Ephesians 5:8-33  Isaiah 65:17-25; 66

Psalm 113

There is a God who is beyond comparison. This God is alive, aware, able, and active. This God is generous as the Giver of life and grace. This God should be praise everywhere! Psalm 113 calls us to praise the one true living God, who is more majestic than our sky. Let’s praise the God who cares for people who are in need. Let us praise the Lord. God is worth it. It’s reasonable to give the best of your energy, praising God.

Ephesians 5:8-33

With gratitude, we should make the most of each day by living for God. If we have received God’s grace we should carefully search out what pleases Him. This pursuit should direct how we live. Filled with the Holy Spirit we will have the ability to live this way. We have learned about God’s love for us (a love that gives). We can choose to live like Jesus and share His love. This becomes a life-shaping ethic. We live out this faithful, patient, kind love in our marriages because we are now constantly aware of Jesus. Love and respect are essential elements of such a marriage.

Isaiah 65:17-25; 66

God speaks through the prophet Isaiah about a day that will be like no other. Our God will make new the earth and the heavens. There will be everlasting peace. Rejoicing and delight: amazing images of God’s way of peace. Here the living God speaks of His powerful ability. Yahweh God will bless the humble of heart. At the end of our time, God will forgive the repentant and punish the rebellious. God will draw people from all nations (ethnicities) into faithful worship. God will bring His eternal peaceful victory.
