Coming Messiah

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Psalm 110:1-7

Psalm 110, written by David, is about the coming Messiah, and as such it is referenced and cited many places in the New Testament. This "song" is rich with information about Christ and the future. So read through it carefully, looking for what this passage reveals about Jesus. As I read, I pulled out a study Bible so I could take in explanatory comments, and I also looked at an online commentary. This was helpful in that it provided me with a fuller picture and better understanding of what I was reading. I'd encourage you to do this as well.

So what did you see or learn about Christ, the Messiah, from this Psalm? Tami

Luke Look Back #2

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Luke 1-24

Today is our final day in Luke and we'll spend it like we did yesterday looking back at the entire Book. Today, however, let's focus on Jesus.

What did the Book of Luke reveal to you about Jesus? I'm guessing there were many important words, scenes, acts and responses of Jesus that impacted you as you read through Luke. So share with us at least one of those key things. Tami

P.S. We'll continue in the Psalms over the weekend and then on Monday we'll do some Bible engaging from the Old Testament, which is rich with lessons for our daily living.

Luke Look Back #1

Today's reading: Luke 1-24

Well, we did it! We worked through the entire Book of Luke together. It took a good number of weeks to make it through, so before we move on, I thought we should take today and tomorrow to look back and reflect on what God has shown us through Luke.

So today, think back over Luke looking for a lesson you learned or perhaps an example you want to follow from someone other than Jesus. Then tell us about it and how you plan to put what you read into action. Tami

Dealing with Doubt

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Luke 24:36-53

I'm most susceptible to letting doubt push into my thinking when things don't go according to the way I've imagined or planned them. From the looks of it, the disciples struggled in the same way. Jesus appears to them and shows them his hands and feet stating, "See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see" (vs. 39). Yet the disciples were still uncertain and unsettled. So Jesus eats in front of them and proceeds to explain the Old Testament scriptures about himself and what had just taken place. When they grasp what Jesus tells them, they then move out of their state of doubt into one of worshipping and great joy. (I can certainly relate to this progression of thinking. How about you?)

What do you do when doubt starts creeping into your thinking? Do you have a particular passage or verse that helps you stay focused on God when things aren't going the way you had planned? (One of my favorite places to turn is Psalm 25.) Tami

Inspirational Walk

| | Comments (3)

Today's reading: Luke 24:13-35

Jesus meets up with two of His followers walking from Jerusalem to Emmaus after His resurrection. The men, who are sad and perplexed, are talking, trying to make sense of Jesus' crucifixion. But when Jesus comes on the scene and engages them in conversation, the whole situation changes. The men explain to Jesus what they are discussing and then Jesus takes over, teaching them with His words and explaining the Old Testament Scriptures (that these men would have been very familiar with). The words of the men when they realize that it was the resurrected Jesus who had been with them, convey quite a bit. "They said to each other, 'Did not our hearts burn within us while he talked to us on the road, while he opened to us the Scriptures?'"(vs. 32).

What does this passage reveal about engaging (receiving, reflecting on and responding to) God's Word? What impact or influence does taking in the Word have on your day-to-day life? Tami
