Day 88 – Revelation 18:1 – 22:21

Our natural life here on earth ends in our funeral. As the Scripture declares: What man can live and not see death? None. But the Good News of Jesus Christ proclaims that the final chapter in the story of our lives is not death but resurrection. This is true of us because our Trailblazer, Jesus, […]

Day 87 – Jude 1 – Revelation 17:18

The Bible is God’s story of how He lovingly, wisely and patiently redeems and restores a wayward creation back to Himself. It is, therefore, not surprising that in the last book of God’s story that the central character of this Redemption Drama takes front stage. We would avoid so many interpretive dead-ends to the Book […]

Day 86 – James 3:13 – 3John14

In today’s reading, we cover the last part of the Letter of James, 1& 2 Peter and 1,2&3 John. In the early Church, only the Apostle Paul exerted comparable leadership to James (Jesus’ half-brother), and the Apostles’ Peter and John. James, the half-brother of Jesus, became the main leader of the Jerusalem Church after the […]

Day 85 – Hebrews 1:1 – James 3:12

The Book of Hebrews was written to Jewish-Christians who were undergoing persecution for their belief that Jesus was Israel’s long-expected Messiah. They were tempted to turn back from following Jesus and reverting to living under the Mosaic Covenant. As a result, the Hebrews writer continually exhorts the Jewish Christians to persevere. For example, in Hebrews […]

Day 83 – Galatians 3:26 – Colossians 4:18

Today’s reading covers four of the Apostle Paul’s letters: Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians. The last three of these letters were written by Paul while he was imprisoned for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. One of the characteristics of Paul’s writings is his passion for Jesus Christ and for Christ’s people, the Church. The […]

Day 81 – Romans 15:1 – 1Corinthians 14:40

In Romans 14 & 15, the Apostle Paul discusses what a Christian’s response should be in disputable matters (Romans 14:1). Specifically, he discusses the area of eating meat and the celebration of special days. In 1Corinthians 8 we have a similar discussion regarding the eating of meat. In both Letters, Paul uses these disputable matters […]

Day 80 – Acts 28:17 – Romans 14:23

Of the many letters written by the Apostle Paul, none is more systematic in its presentation of Paul’s theology than the Letter to the Romans. Paul is preparing to meet the church at Rome for the first time (Romans 1:8-13). In advance of this visit, Paul writes them his vaunted Epistle to the Romans. This […]

Day 79 – Acts 16:38 – 28:16

In the great Book of Acts, we have an orderly account of how the Church and its Gospel message of a Savior spread from Jerusalem (Acts 1-7) all the way to Rome (Acts 28). Luke doesn’t give a detailed account of the first 20 years of Church history, but he does give us a good […]
