July 27 Bible reading

27 07 2022

July 27 Proverbs 18:7-16 Romans 10:5-21; 11:1-10 1 Chronicles 2:18-55; 3; 4:1-8

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?

July 27 Proverbs 18:7-16 Romans 10:5-21; 11:1-10 1 Chronicles 2:18-55; 3; 4:1-8

Proverbs 18:7-16

The words of foolish people will trap them in results they would rather avoid. Humble people will receive honor. Smart people are always ready to learn. They listen. They are careful in their choice of words. They work hard. They are generous. These should be characteristics of people who are looking to God as their strength.

Romans 10:5-21; 11:1-10

New spiritual life comes from God, through Jesus Christ. It brings forgiveness and a state of being in a right-standing relationship with God. We can receive this by choosing faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior. Anyone who will believe in their heart and confess with their mouth that the resurrected Jesus is our Savior Lord will be saved from punishment and given this eternal life. In salvation, God’s grace for us is free and undeserved. Out of gratitude, and with a sense of purpose, we should share this new life with others. Sadly, not everyone will receive this free gift by faith, but some will reject it. We must continue to share this miraculous love of God, with others.

1 Chronicles 2:18-55; 3; 4:1-8

God’s story cannot be told without an accurate description of His love for every human life. We are reminded of many stories in genealogies. In David, we see God’s grace, mercy, redemption, and restoration after serious mistakes of adultery and murder. We can respond to God in faith. God loves us.
