Congrats on hanging in there – we’re 1/3 of the way thru January. Don’t let Scripture reading become a duty however – you can browse a list we put together of some of the blessings of reading Scripture (and please share with us if you’ve found some we missed!)
Genesis 25 is a Bible Trivia bonus question – most Christians don’t know the name of Abraham’s second wife. 25:9 takes us back to Machpelah. 25:21 – interesting that two generations in a row of patriarchs had trouble conceiving a child. 25:34 – we see the “mess of pottage” – a phrase that has been used by many over the years including Karl Marx!
Matthew 8:18-22 – I heard a message on this passage entitled “A Question of Commitment.” Following Jesus is greater than any comfort, and any relationship you may have.
Matthew 8:23-27 Jesus has power over nature, and in Matthew 8:28-33 Jesus has power over demons. But instead of seeking deliverance we see a city that “besought him that he would depart.”
Psalm 12:12 – What kind of person will God not forget?
Proverbs 3:7 – How close can we get to evil?
