“I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you. Blessed are you, O Lord; teach me your statutes!”
Psalm 119:11‭-‬12 ESV

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 27th week of our daily Bible reading plan.

This week, we read from Luke 8-9, Colossians 2-4, Psalms 128-135, 1 Chronicles 10-25.

We also began reading from the book of Thessalonians. It’s the first written letter by the Apostle Paul. He, being impressed with how the church at Thessalonica continued to grow spiritually in spite of persecution, sought to encourage them in the Lord. He also prayed for them because of the afflictions they were facing.

This letter contains information about the Rapture and the Second Coming of Christ. It also admonishes us as believers to take our Christan faith more seriously by praying without ceasing, quenching not the Spirit’s fire, among other instructions. So far, we’ve read 1 Thessalonians 1.

Next, our reading of 1 Chronicles 10-25 continues with more narration of King David’s reign. Although we read about this in the book of Samuel and 1 Kings, the book particularly concentrates on the good things David did while he was king. His misdeeds are not recorded.

In Psalms 120-134, we read the “songs of ascents”. These psalms are widely believed to have been sung and meditated upon by ancient Hebrew pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem or to the Temple to worship God.

That’s why many of these Psalms have to do with fearing God and the joy of worshipping in His Temple. They offer encouragement for anyone who seeks to worship God.

In Luke 8-9, we see Jesus encouraging us to use the gifts we have received for God, how He calmed a storm, cast out demons, sent the disciples out to preach about the kingdom, fed five thousand men (as well as women and children), and so on.

Then, we rounded off our reading of Colossians this week. In chapter 2-4, Paul teaches us (believers) that we are not subject to festivals, practices, seasons and so on, but to Christ who is head over all.

In the light of this, we are to walk in our new nature in Him and only seek after the things of God. We are also told to walk in wisdom towards unbelievers and speak with grace. Finally, Paul rounds off his letter by sending greetings to certain persons in the church at Colosse.

That’s all we read this week. Have a wonderful weekend fam.
