Daily Bible Reading for Week of April 1-7, 2018
Your reading through Judges this week will bring you into the lives of many men including Gideon, Jephthah, and Samson. You will continue to read of Israel's failures and the trouble they got into, then God provides a judge to help them out of their troubles, then they go back and repeat the scenario all over again! As you read try to consider how often we go through the same pattern: We don't obey God, we get into some kind of trouble, the Lord brings relief and a reminder to obey Him, then we foolishly go back and "do it all over again!"
In Luke 16 you will read of God's requirement of faithful service to Him. Jesus gives the story of the rich man and a poor man who both die but their eternal destiny is "world's apart!" This gives one of the clearest ideas of the suffering of hell for the lost and the comforts of Heaven for the saved. Luke 17 speaks against disobeying God's laws; of forgiveness and service. Ten lepers are cured with only one saying, "Thanks." In Luke 18 Jesus again speaks on prayer; He blesses little children, and He cautions a rich, young ruler about what is really important. In Luke 19 Jesus comes to Zacchaeus' house, He gives the parable of the rich nobleman, and He enters Jerusalem on the first Palm Sunday. In Luke 19:41 you'll note that Jesus wept over the city of Jerusalem.
