Journey through Luke

| | Comments (0)

Today's reading: Luke 1:1-4 

Now that we've finished reading through Judges (thanks for joining me in that, by the way), I thought it would be good to turn to a New Testament Book. So today is day one of our journey through the Book of Luke where we're starting by considering Luke's opening verses as an introduction for the Book. (As we get further into Luke and work through all 24 chapters, we'll also do some parallel reading from the other Gospels).

So what information did you draw from the introductory verses of Luke? What is Luke's purpose for writing this Book? Tami

The Tongue 101

Today's reading: Psalm 64 

Our tongues are powerful weapons. As I read Psalm 64, I couldn't help but notice how the tongue (our speech) seemed to be a key focus. Verse 3 talks about tongues being like swords and how deadly words can be. And in verse 5, again we see talking about evil things. Then finally in verse 8, we see that God turns the tongues of the evil against themselves to bring them to ruin.

So after reading Psalm 64, how important is it that we watch our tongues? Any thoughts on how we should conduct ourselves when others are using their tongues against us? Tami

P.S. Happy Easter, everyone! Hope you're able to reflect on the amazing gift of forgiveness and salvation offered to us through Christ.

Earnestly Seeking?

Today's reading: Psalm 63 

Psalm 63 is one of my favorites. I love the descriptive phrases of David's love for the Lord and the emotion and intensity David displays throughout the psalm. The very first verse where David says "earnestly I seek you" kind of hit me. I found myself thinking How earnestly am I seeking? Do these verses describe my relationship with the Lord?

So what does earnestly seeking God look like in your life? Is there something you can do today to earnestly seek Him more? Tami

Wrap on Judges

Today's reading: Judges 21 

Today is our final day in Judges, and in chapter 21 we continue to see the fall out of the sinful actions, thinking and behavior which began in chapter 19 with the account of the Levite and his concubine. As we reach the end of this chapter and the Book we, once again, see these fitting words. "In those days there was no king in Israel. Everyone did what was right in his own eyes" (verse 25).

Think back over the Book of Judges. What was the predominant message God impressed on your heart from this Book? How has reading Judges impacted your thinking and actions? Tami

P.S. Today is Good Friday and Sunday is Easter. Make sure you're in church this weekend. And, why not invite someone else to attend with you?

Today's reading: Judges 20 

The sad and disturbing account of the Levite and his concubine continues and grows as we move into Judges 20. And by the time we reach the end of the chapter, almost the entire tribe of Benjamin is wiped out. As I read, I tried to imagine exactly what was taking place verse by verse. The battles themselves had to be awful, but making things even worse was the fact that this was a war between relatives, and it could have been avoided.

What does Judges 20 show us about pride and being unwilling to confront sinful behavior? What can we learn about dealing with relatives and family from this situation? Tami
