“How can a young man keep his way pure? By keeping Your word.”
Psalms 119:9 HCSB
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 25th week of our daily Bible reading plan.
This week, we read from Luke 5-6, Philippians 2-4:1-7, Psalms 119:137-144, Psalms 120, and 2 Kings 11-21.
2 Kings 11-21 continues with the political and theocratic leadership of the kings of Israel and Judah respectively. We read about wrongful reigns, repairs of the Temple at Jerusalem, encouraged worship of other gods by the Kings, to mention a few. As usual, we see the narration judging the kings’ leadership based on their submission to Yahweh, the Most High God.
This week, we rounded off our reading of Psalms 119. In this lengthy Psalm, we see the blessedness of walking in the knowledge of God’s word.
In Luke 5-6, we read about how Peter, James and John were called to be disciples of Jesus, several healing miracles by Jesus, how Jesus is the Lord of the Sabbath, His praying habits, and His teachings.
Finally, we read from Philippians 2-4:1-7. Here, Apostle Paul admonishes us on how to live as children of God. In Chapter 3, he listed his qualifications according to human standards but discredited them as worthless compared to the life of Christ in him. In the light of this, he implores us to keep our lives focused on Christ rather than our circumstances or the wrongful conduct of others.
Chapter 4 is a continuation of this thought – we told to rejoice, pray and fix our minds on the right things, rather than worry about anything.
Philippians 4:8-9 is particularly instructive:
“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things. The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.”
Philippians 4:8-9 NKJV
And that’s what we read this week in our Bible reading plan. If you are lagging behind, please try to catch up this weekend. Have a wonderful one.
