7/26/19 One Year Bible Recap

2 Chronicles 17: 1—18: 34 We read this story of Jehoshaphat and Ahab in 1 Kings 8, and it is just as funny this time around.  In this version we get more of Jehoshaphat’s point of view.  I love how he sent teachers into the clans to teach the people God’s Law.  They are so far removed from Sinai that this was most likely … Read More 7/26/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/25/19 One Year Bible Recap

2 Chronicles 14: 1—16: 14 Godly choices bring peace.  There is no way around it.  Asa lines his life and Judah up with what they know of God and sees the chaos created from the idol worship, so he cleans house.  Because of this the people has peace and rest.  This principle is true for us believers as well.  We can be living lives … Read More 7/25/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/24/19 One Year Bible Recap

2 Chronicles 11:1—13: 22 Remember, we have read these stories before in 2 Kings.  Sometimes it’s confusing because the Chronicler is recording different aspects of the same stories.  This is the same as how the Gospels are all telling stories about the life of Jesus but from a different point of view.  All Scripture is God breathed and He delights in using different writers … Read More 7/24/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/23/19 One Year Bible Recap

2 Chronicles 8: 11—10:19 This recording of Solomon moving his Egyptian wife stood out to me.  It was just one of those confusing things that makes you think, “This is recorded for a reason but I don’t get it.”  That is where the trusty Bible Knowledge Commentary comes in handy.  People who are way smarter than me dive into the text and through a … Read More 7/23/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/22/19 One Year Bible Recap

2 Chronicles 6:12—8:10 I loved all the insight we got in this section for what went on at the dedication of the Temple.  The beginning of his prayer really stood out to me because I think it is such a good declaration of God’s character.  He does not keep the covenant He has made with Israel based on their obedience; he keeps the covenant … Read More 7/22/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/20/19 One Year Bible Recap

2 Chronicles 1:1—3:17 I know I usually celebrate for us when we start a new book of the bible, but, in the oldest manuscripts we have, these books are 1 book.  So, it feels like cheating if I say we started a new book.  Anyway, in todays reading we are re-living Solomon’s ascension to the throne, and his conversation with God where he is … Read More 7/20/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 28: 1—29: 30 Interesting tid-bit today.  God promised the Israelites that the “Scepter would not leave Judah.”  This means that the Savior and Everlasting King, A.K.A Jesus would come from the line of Judah.  God promised David that He would preserve his line because of David’s faithfulness.  By the time we get to the New Testament all that is left of the … Read More 7/19/19

7/18/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 26: 12—27: 34 You know what I see in this portion of the scripture reading today?  Order.  Structure and everyone knowing their place leads to peace and prosperity.  It is only when people usurp power, do wars start.  God put order in the nation of Israel to reflect His Character.  He put order in the Church to reflect His Character.  He put … Read More 7/18/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/17/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 24: 1—26: 11 “Casting Lots” in the Old Testament is not the same as gambling.  This was the way they determined God’s will in a situation like this were people were assigned jobs or land.  It was not used in situations like, “Should we follow the Lord and adhere to the Law?”  The use of this was in deference to God because … Read More 7/17/19 One Year Bible Recap

7/16/19 One Year Bible Recap

1 Chronicles 22: 1—23: 32 There is nothing I love more than seeing someone prepare for the future.  There is nothing more frustrating to me than someone who says, “In the future I am going to _____” but then does nothing to move toward that end.  I am going to sound like a cliché motivational poster, but this principle is true: Achieving desired goals … Read More 7/16/19 One Year Bible Recap
