07.04.20 Job 25 Job 26 Job 27 Romans 10 Today as we reflect on the declaration of our nation’s independence from the rule of another country we should reflect on an even greater freedom – the freedom from sin and death that we have through the Lord, Jesus Christ.  In today’s reading I was reminded

07.03.20 Job 22 Job 23 Job 24 Romans 9 As we have already seen, one of Paul’s greatest challenges was to instruct former Jewish believers that the “baggage” they were bringing from their life-long learnings has been totally changed by the very Son of God.  And today he addresses attaining righteousness – we cannot earn

06.30.20 Job 16 Job 17 Job 18 Romans 7 Have you ever felt overwhelmed by a sinful thought that you just cannot get out of your mind & you feel so guilty that you are depressed?  In today’s reading we see the apostle Paul, a chosen instrument of God, a worker of miracles, and a

06.29.20 Job 13 Job 14 Job 15 Romans 6 Often when I read the inspired word of God there is nothing that I can add to the reality of the promises that are stated.  Todays reading is one on which all I can do is reflect, be thankful and praise God!  Romans 6:  Or don’t

06.28.20 Job 10 Job 11 Job 12 Romans 5 In my blog on Acts 28 I mentioned that the Gospel spread so quickly through the area due to the Roman Empire’s network of roads and the peace they enforced.  We have also discussed how God’s time-line is often quite different from what we expect.   Today’s

06.27.20 Job 7 Job 8 Job 9 Romans 4 Job 9:   2 “Indeed, I know that this is true. But how can a mortal be righteous before God? This is a very, very preceptive question from Job. And we see it repeated throughout the book of Job.  And we are blessed by God’s plan of redemption

06.26.20 Job 4 Job 5 Job 6 Romans 3 When I began reading the words of Eliphaz, the Temanite, I was not expecting to be struck by words of praise.  Yet they are there and have been there thousands of years – inspired by the Holy Spirit.    Job 5:   8 “But if I were you,

06.24.20 Job 1 Job 2 Job 3 Romans 2 As we head into the reading of Job I had a couple of Bible “margin notes” that may help us put the reality of Job’s situation into perspective.  First, many think that Job was recorded either before or right after Genesis – making it one of

06.23.20 Esther 9 Esther 10 Romans 1 As you read the passage from Romans today did one verse in particular “grab you” based on what we have just experienced as a Body … Romans 1:  11 I long to see you so that I may impart to you some spiritual gift to make you strong— 12 that is, that you

06.22.20 Esther 7 Esther 8 Acts 28 Acts 28:   13 From there we set sail and arrived at Rhegium. The next day the south wind came up, and on the following day we reached Puteoli. 14 There we found some brothers and sisters who invited us to spend a week with them. And so we came to Rome. 15 The brothers

06.21.20 Esther 4 Esther 5 Esther 6 Acts 27 Doesn’t Luke provide a detailed “adventure story”-type description of the beginning of Paul’s trip to Rome?   I could almost feel the “gentle south wind” and, then, the howling of the gale and crashing waves of the “Northeaster.”  Throughout it all we see the leadership of the

06.20.20 Esther 1 Esther 2 Esther 3 Acts 26 I think one of the issues many of us struggle with is patience.  I know that at many times I want it now!  And I found an example of how the Holy Spirit can work in our lives when I saw Paul’s response to King Agrippa:

06.19.20 Nehemiah 12 Nehemiah 13 Acts 25 There are times in our lives when God’s will has been fulfilled but we do not recognize His “thread” running through our lives until later.

06.17.20 Nehemiah 10 Nehemiah 11 Acts 24 Acts 24:  25 As Paul talked about righteousness, self-control and the judgment to come, Felix was afraid and said, “That’s enough for now! You may leave. When I find it convenient, I will send for you.” Today I read in the words of Marcus Antonius Felix, the Roman Governor of Judea, a
