Daily Bible Reading Day 53: Job 22

Job 22

Eliphaz spoke to Job again.  He told him that sinners need to repent of their sins.  Eliphaz declared that Job thought too little of God and that God was with us.  Even though Eliphaz spoke the truth, it did not apply to Job’s situation.  Job asked for forgiveness and worshipped God all along.

God is with us, He is not far away.  He sees all of our sins.  We cannot hide them from God.  Repent and be free from the bondage sin brings.

Daily Bible Reading Day 340

Daily Bible Reading Day 340: 2 Chronicles 6:12-42/ 1 John 5

2 Chronicles 6:12-42

Solomon loved and worshipped God.  The temple could not contain the power and the majesty of the Holy Spirit.  Solomon showed the people the importance of worship.

Jesus is the only one without sin.  No one can escape it.  Since knowing this, we should cling even more to God, for protection and guidance.

God is waiting for us to pray to Him.  He hears every word we pray.  We may think God is distance because we do not hear direction.  But let us become still to hear the Lord.

1 John 5

Jesus is the son of God.  Before and after His baptism and resurrection.  Follow Jesus will not be easy, but we are under God’s covering.  We have eternal life accepting Jesus as our Savior.  Live your life for God.

If our prayers are aligned with the will of God, we should hear an answer.  God is not a genie that grants us every wish and desire.  Pray always!

Do not worship idols (money, success, beauty, people, etc.) because it removes us from God.  When we are believers, we have the freedom from the bondage of sin and a protective covering.  If we are in the world, we are worshipping Satan.

Daily Bible Reading Day 285

Daily Bible Reading Day 285:1Kings 15/Colossians 2

1 Kings 15

Sin destroys so much.  The country of Israel continued to fall back into sin.  Even after God destroyed Jeroboam’s descendants for their sins, Baasha made the same mistake.

We need to learn from our mistakes and not to repeat the same sins that cause so much pain and heartache.  Pray for guidance and protection against temptation.  Worship the one true King, not anything that would become an idol.

Colossians 2

Paul had to enlighten the Colossian Church about false teachings coming from the city of Laodicea.   Jesus Christ, alone is our source of knowledge and strength.  Jesus’ death on the cross gives us the freedom from staying in the bondage of sin.  Too many times, religious rhetoric and judgement of and from other Christians, stalls us from living according to His will.

Daily Bible Reading Day 271

Daily Bible Reading Day 271: 2 Samuel 24/Galatians 4

2 Samuel 24

And David built there an altar to the Lord and offered and peace offerings.  So the Lord responded to the plea for the land, and the plague was averted from Israel.  2 Samuel 24:25

Israel was finally at peace.  Out of all of the leaders,  King David was able to bring Israel to that point.  However, King David was a sinner.  God was angry with Israel due to their sin.  An angel of the Lord brought a plague upon Israel and 70,000 men died.  The cause of sin was not explained.  But David asked the angel of God to bring the punishment upon him instead of more men.  David built an altar, offered peace offerings, and the plague stopped.

Galatians 4

But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under th law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.  And because you are sons, God has sent the spirit of His Son into our hearts crying “Abba!  Father!”.  So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.  Galatians 4:4-7

Jesus was the perfect sacrifice.  He was human but without sin.  We were in bondage by following the law.  Jesus came to free us of that bondage.  We are saved by our faith, not through works.  Through Jesus, we have been welcomed into the family of God.

 

 

 


Daily Bible Reading Day 69

Daily Bible Reading Day 69: Exodus 21/Luke 24

Exodus 21

Laws were implemented to provide safety and consequences for bad actions.  Every decision we make can result in good or bad.  Let us always be responsible.

The Hebrew people ironically, did have slaves.  But they were treated as humans not property.  There was always a chance for slaves to become free.

The famous verses “an eye for an eye” comes from this chapter.  This punishment was to fit specific crimes.  But these rules were for judges to employ, not personal vendettas.

Luke 24

The women who were preparing the spices, went to the tomb.  They saw that there was no body of Jesus.  Two angels appeared to the women and said no one was here and Jesus was alive and that prophesy was fulfilled.  The women went to tell the eleven disciples.

Jesus’ resurrected body could appear and disappear.  So, He appeared to two believers walking away from Jerusalem.  They didn’t recognize Jesus when He appeared to them.  They were filled with such sorrow and sadness, they couldn’t see.  After Jesus spoke to them, their eyes were opened.  They broke bread together and went to tell the disciples Jesus had risen.

Jesus came to the eleven disciples.  They thought they saw a ghost.  Jesus spoke to them and even told them to touch Him to show He was alive.  After they realized He was indeed alive, Jesus asked for food and they fed Him.

Jesus met with the disciples again.  He instructed them to teach about His suffering and being raised from the dead for people’s sins to be forgiven to all nations.  Jesus said how He will be with them always, through the Holy Spirit.

In all major religions, a moral code and thoughts of the afterlife are taught.  But the bigggest difference is that in Christianity, Jesus came in human form, died for our sins, rose from the dead and is living today!  We believe in a living God!  There is no doubt that Jesus existed.  Everytime you write the date, it is proof that Jesus walked on Earth.
