June 19 Bible reading

19 06 2022

June 19  Psalm 75  Acts 13:13-41  1 Kings 6; 7:1-22

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 19  Psalm 75  Acts 13:13-41  1 Kings 6; 7:1-22

Psalm 75

Even if it seems that our world is falling apart, there is a stability found in a relationship with God, who is in control. God is the One who holds it all together. Our Sovereign God will bring justice. We must remember this truth. It should inform how we think and feel. It should be an essential ingredient to our values and decision making.

Acts 13:13-41

Walking his audience through the history of Israel, Paul points to a Father God who has always been at the work of redemption. Paul unpacks the message of salvation in describing Jesus as the Messiah predicted, a descendant of King David. Paul taught that through faith in Jesus forgiveness can be found. In Jesus, a redemption was now available like never before.

1 Kings 6; 7:1-22

God made renewed His promises to His people as He gave Solomon guidance for the Temple.  With great care, King Solomon follows God’s instructions in building the Temple. After he completes the Temple, Solomon built himself a palace and facility for the government. All of this was meant to serve the people as they served God.
