“Rivers of water run down from my eyes, Because men do not keep Your law.”
Psalms 119:136 NKJV

Welcome to Bible Reading Plan Recap – that time we do a quick summary of what we read in the Bible this week. It’s the 24th week of our daily Bible reading plan.

This week, we read from Luke 4-5:17-26, Ephesians 6, Philippians 1-2:1-11, Psalms 119:89-136, 1 Kings 19-22, 2 Kings 1-9

In 1 Kings 17, we were introduced to Elijah, the Tishbite. He was a prophet of God who lived during the reign of Ahab, king of Israel. Ahab, alongside his foreign wife, Jezebel blatantly disregarded God’s law , worshipped Baal (1 Kings 16:31) and committed a lot of atrocities in Israel.

In the midst of all these, Elijah lived for the true God. He also proved God’s eminence over all the other gods through various miracles, wonders, and prophecies. All of which we read from 1 Kings 17-20 and 2 Kings 1-2.

2 Kings recounts events about the reign of the kings of Judah and Israel respectively, alongside the men of God who kept warning these kings about the errors of their ways. Elisha is prominent amongst these men. He continued in Elijah’s stead in the power of the Spirit. So far, we’ve read about the various miracles he performed such as the parting of the Jordan, the raising of the dead, curing Naaman’s leprosy, to mention a few.

In the midst of all these events, it’s hard to miss how the kings of Judah and Israel were compared to either King David, a king who followed God, or to Jeroboam, a king who followed other gods. Take note of this.

We also continued with reading about the excellencies of God’s word in Psalms 119:89-136. Hope you meditated on certain texts that spoke to your heart?

In Luke 4-5:17-26, we read about how Jesus’ authority was not accepted in His hometown (Luke 4:17-30); how he cast out demons and unclean spirits; and his teachings on discipleship, healing and forgiveness.

We also rounded off our reading of Ephesians this week and started with the book of Phillipians. In Phillipians, Paul wrote about his imprisonment because of the defense and confirmation of the Gospel.

This book teaches us to preach Christ with the right motives. We are to emulate Christ Jesus “who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2:6‭-‬7 NKJV)

Also, we are instructed to do all things without complaining as we shine as lights in a perverse generation.

And that’s all we read this week. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Spend it wisely.
