June 15 Bible reading

15 06 2022

June 15  Psalm 74:1-9  Acts 9:32-43; 10:1-23  2 Samuel 23:8-39; 24

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 15  Psalm 74:1-9  Acts 9:32-43; 10:1-23  2 Samuel 23:8-39; 24

Psalm 74:1-9

In Psalm 74 Asaph sings a lament of the destruction of Jerusalem, a city that God loves, and the place of worship designed by God. This was a deep and powerful grieving of an incredible loss for a nation of people. Beyond that, it was a spiritual paradise (of God’s promised community with His people) that was lost because God’s people turned away from a loving relationship with Him. It’s right for us to mourn what is wrong.

Acts 9:32-43; 10:1-23

Peter prays and sees miracle healing come to a paralyzed man and a woman raised to life from the dead. This same miracle power is available to us through Jesus today! God sends an angel to Cornelius, a captain of the Italian Regiment a cruel ruling force, affirming his faith in God and service to the poor. We should pray for more of this and affirm it when we see it. God is arranging a meeting between Peter and Cornelius that would become significant to the approach of church leadership toward Gentiles. Over and over God communicates His heart for all people.

2 Samuel 23:8-39; 24

Over his lifetime, David saw God allow consequences for sin. David learned the value of repentance and sparing no expense when seeking forgiveness from God. He knew that repentance must cost you something. This lesson helps us learn from our mistakes. God wants us to avoid self-inflicted wounds.
