May 26  Psalm 68:1-6  John 16:5-33; 17:1-5  1 Samuel 17:38-58; 18

Psalm 68:1-6

Our God defends those who cannot defend themselves and provides for those who cannot provide for themselves. We are given the opportunity to participate in this work.

John 16:5-33; 17:1-5

Jesus describes the function of the Holy Spirit as a guide in truth, bringing conviction of sin, relaying to us the words of the Father, and the Son, telling us about the future and bringing glory to God. We are now given an opportunity to understand this teaching of Jesus about the Holy Spirit. Christians should be able to interact with the Holy Spirit in the ways that Jesus described. Are you looking to God the Holy Spirit in these ways? Jesus prays in preparation for His death, asking Father God to bring about His New Covenant. There’s much to learn about God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit from the prayer of Jesus. Am I relating to God in ways that are respective of these truths, today?

1 Samuel 17:38-58; 18

Preparing to fight the giant Goliath, little David describes the name of God as being his weapon. David predicts that God will win so that people will have faith in God. What a contrast from Saul who wanted people looking to himself! David’s heart is the difference. King Saul grew jealous of David, a poor young man from a humble family.

May 26  Psalm 68:1-6  John 16:5-33; 17:1-5  1 Samuel 17:38-58; 18

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.
