TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Nehemiah 7:73-9:21    True faith leads to action.  The rebuilding of the wall was not simply about brick and mortar but about reestablishing the Lord’s sovereignty.  Ezra preaches to the returned exiles, marking the outbreak of spiritual revival — public proclamation of Scriptures, feasting, fasting, confession, prayer, worshipful recital of God’s ongoing deliverance for Israel, and God’s people’s humble plea for forgiveness and restoration.

1 Corinthians 9:1-18  Apostle Paul gives up his rights i.e., payment for preaching.  “God has given me this sacred trust.  My pay is the opportunity to preach the Good News without charging anyone.”

Psalm 31:12-22  Our hope is in you alone.  But the Lord watches over those who fear Him,  those who rely on His unfailing love.  He rescues them from death and keeps them alive in times of famine.  We put our hope in the Lord.  He is our help and our shield

Proverbs 21:11-12  Become wise.  God will punish the wicked.  If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded become wise; if you instruct the wise, they will be all the wiser.  The Righteous One knows what is going on in the homes of the wicked; He will bring disaster on them.

READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (8/13)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Nehemiah 5:14-7:73 With Persian King Artaxerxes permission, Nehemiah, the king’s cup-bearer, returns to Jerusalem and leads a team of builders to reconstruct the walls of Jerusalem (devastated by the Babylonians in 586 BC) .  Despite much pagan oppositions, this monumental task is completed in 52 days, shocking many enemies.  Nehemiah registers the people.  Ezra, the high priest, reads the law.

1 Corinthians 8:1-13  It is love that strengthens the church.  Anyone who claims to know all the answers doesn’t really know very much.  But the person who loves God is the one whom God recognizes.

Psalm 33:1-11  For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything He does.  He loves whatever is just and good; the unfailing love of the Lord fills the earth.  Let the whole world fear the Lord, and let everyone stand in awe of Him.  For when He spoke, the world began!  It appeared at His command.

Proverbs 21:8-10  The guilty walk a crooked path; the innocent travel a straight road. It’s better to live alone in the corner of an attic than with a quarrelsome wife in a lovely home. Evil people desire evil; their neighbors get no mercy from them.

READ THE BIBLE IN 365 DAYS: SHORT AND CONCISE (8/12)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURES:

Nehemiah 3:15-5:13  The Jews work zealously to restore the walls of Jerusalem.  Furious enemies mock the Jews but God provides protection.  Nehemiah defends the poor, oppressed, over-taxed Jews from the wealthy Jews.  Said Nehemiah, “You are hurting your own relatives by charging interest when they borrow money!” He called a public meeting.  Wealthy Jews repent and return the monies to their less fortunate brethren.

1 Corinthians 7:25-40  Apostle Paul encourages celibacy; however, promotes marriage if that will help keep passions under control. Paul also recommends marriage between believers but upholds celibacy above all.

Psalm 32:1-11  I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.  And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.  Many sorrows come to the wicked but unfailing love surrounds those who trust the Lord.  So rejoice in the Lord and be glad, all you who obey him!  Shout for joy, all you whose hearts are pure!

Proverbs 21: 5-7   Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.  Wealth created by a lying tongue is a vanishing mist and a deadly trap.  The violence of the wicked sweeps them away, because they refuse to do what is just.
