Luke 1:26-38

This is the beginning of the Christmas story. It is the most important part when Gabriel came to Mary and told her that she was to give birth to her saviour and the saviour of the world, Jesus. Can you imagine what she must have thought?

Here is what I have done for today since I am frustrated with my computer not wanting to download something for my church. I can’t get my mind on anything else, okay?

Mark 1:35-45

This is about the many healings of Jesus including cleansing a leper. This scripture can be found both in Matthew and Luke. The mos important thing is that the leper told everywhere in the city what Jesus did and He had to leave that city.

1 Corinthians 3

This chapter is divided into two parts: “Ministers are co-labourers with God” and “Ministers are accountable to God.”  It basically tells us to do the work God has called us to with no complaints unlike babes in Christ.  Two verses were cross referenced in this chapter, verse 19 to Job 5:13 and verse 20 is cross referenced to Psalms 94:11. You should check them out for yourself, okay?

Psalms 75

To the chief Musician, Altaschith, which means “Set to ‘Do Not Destroy,'” A Psalm or Song of Asaph. This entire chapter is very short, but talks about how “God is the Judge” over everyone.

I hope that both of you are still running this blog. I am sorry it has been quite awhile since I posted.

Mark 1:21-34

This tells about the beginning of Jesus’ ministry eventhough, it is divided into three parts.

The next two scriptures go together but talk about two different things .

1 Corinthians 2

Different aspects of the Spirit and Christ and how both work in our lives.

Psalms 74

Maschil of Asaph tells about “The Righteous King,” which is God.

Joshua 6-7

The beginning chapter details the infamous “Battle of Jericho.” The last chapter details the betrayal of Achan to the tribes of Israel and his punishment.

Here I am, again!

Luke 15:1-10

This scripture is very familiar. It is broken down into two sections or parables: The Lost Sheep, and The Lost Coin. The Lost Sheep is cross-referenced to the same thing in Matthew 18: 12-14. Both of these sections are about us when were sinners how God cared for us to come and find us and rescue us.

Luke 9:1-17

It took me a while to get this read today. I started reading out of my old Bible, but I ended reading out of my new Bible.

So, this is just my thoughts or reflections since it has no study notes or cross-references.

This scripture has two sections describing the instructions Jesus give to all his disciples about how they are suppose to spread his word including us and the miracle of five loaves and two fishes feeding five thousand men and their families.

That is basically it since this scripture especially the last section is very familiar.

I know it has been sometime, but I am determined to keep reading and posting my reflections when I can, okay?

Luke 1:57-66

This scripture is very familiar about John the Baptist’s birth, but I think that it is profound that there was a great crowd of people here alone. Isn’t odd that this was the steward to Jesus’ coming and the difference in the crowd of people at their births. It should have been a greater miracle for Mary to deliver Jesus than Elizabeth and Zacharias to have John the Baptist. Bye the way, I am going to research why everybody calls him John the Baptist. I have always been curious, okay?

Ephesians 2:11-22

Speaking of Jesus’ birth and his coming into the Earth this scripture is very connected in that it tells about our Christian conversion. The beginning tells about our lives before and the end tells about our lives now. I especially like the fact that Paul writes that before our Christian conversion we were nobody, and now we are in the household of God with all the saints and are brothers and sisters to Jesus Christ.

Psalms 119:25-32

This entire scripture is divided into sections with the symbol and Hebrew word for each section. They are neat, but I researched them and only mean 1, 2, 3, 4, and so forth.

This section deals with the repentant heart and tells everything that we need to do to become fully devoted to “His Service” and “True Christians.”

 

I really like this verse: hope that you guys can profit from it too:

It’s from Marilyn Brown Oden
Wilderness Wanderings :

Inherent in a fast is a feast. When we fast from food, we feast on prayer and God’s bountiful love. When we fast from divisive patterns of relating with others, we feast on the amazing awareness that each face we see is the face of Christ. When we fast from building social, economic, and political walls, we feast on our universal oneness with the One.
