TODAY’S BIBLE READING CHALLENGE:
Joshua 17:16 and 18 — Similar to Judges 1:19. Charles Spurgeon preached a great message on “Chariots of Iron.”
Joshua 18:1 — The tabernacle was setup at Shiloh. In 1 Samuel 1:3, the tabernacle is still at Shiloh during the time of Samuel. Jeremiah writes that it was the first place where God set His name (Jeremiah 7:12).
Luke 19:10 — From Earl Martin:
Luke 19:2 — Zacchaeus’ story is only found in Luke.
Here’s a video of the story:
A pastor shared with me a simple outline for preaching on this passage:
- Jesus sees me (Luke 19:5)
- Jesus knows me (Luke 19:5)
- Jesus saves me (Luke 19:9)
Luke 19:13 — Occupy till I come. How are you doing with your occupying? Are you faithful, or are you burying your talent?
Psalm 87:2, 3, 5 — If you have never been to Jerusalem or the Holy Land – make plans to go! You’ll never read the Bible the same way again! John Newton, author of the hymn “Amazing Grace,” used Psalm 87:3 to inspire the hymn “Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken.” Instead of an English rendition, here’s a Korean rendition so you can see the worldwide impact of godly music.
Proverbs 13:11 — Diligence is a virtue. Proverbs 6:6-8, 10:4, 12:24, 13:4, and 21:5 emphasize this. As does Galatians 6:9, James 1:12, Ecclesiastes 9:10, and Philippians 3:14.
