Speaking of "Where am I going", as someone new to the study of the bible, please point me in the right direction. I have read Genesis, Mathew, Mark, Luke, & John based on recommendation from a friend of mine. What should I read now, and why?

Thanks.

I would reccomend psalms or proverbs, really good applications as well as messages in those books.

If you haven't completed the entire bible I would recommend that, through my experiences a lot of books are neglected, and these books have an endless pool of wisdom. When I was saved I read Genesis to Revelation, it was a good experience. Now I am on a reading plan, I find that everytime I read a book now I learn something new.

Perhaps Today

READ: Matthew 24:36-46

You also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. —Matthew 24:44

A year ago, I read an article saying that millions of TV sets in the United States would stop working today unless they were able to receive digital signals. Notices appeared in electronics stores, and the government even offered a free $40 coupon toward the purchase of a converter box.

I suspect that most people took the necessary steps to make sure their TV set would work when they turned it on today. We usually respond well to warnings tied to specific dates, but often fail to prepare for an event that will come “some day.”

When the disciples asked Jesus about the date of His return (Matt. 24:3), He told them that only God the Father knows: “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only” (v.36). Then He urged them to be prepared so that they would not be taken by surprise. “Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect” (v.44).

We don’t know when Jesus will return; He may come at any time. Dr. M. R. De Haan, founder of RBC Ministries, kept a two-word motto in his office: “Perhaps Today.”

When we make our daily plans, are we aware that Christ may return? Are we prepared to meet Him? — David C. McCasland

The darkness deepens! Yes, but dawn is nearer!
The Lord from heaven may soon be on His way;
The “blessed hope” in these dark days grows dearer,
Our Savior Christ will come—perhaps today! —Smith


If Christ comes today, will you be ready to meet Him?

Good motto, I'm gonna put that up in my office.

And as always, thanks HardCory for taking the time to write these out each day.

Great job as always. It stands to reason, it's like an in-law who said I am coming to visit and we say ok good. He never comes and we aren't worried until: one day he drives up in the yard,,oppsss!

Yeah that really struck me when I read it this morning, it makes me realize that people put so many things ahead of Jesus. But the motto stuck with me all day, I think that will drive me daily to be a better Christian.

Making Melody

READ: Psalm 126

Speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs. —Ephesians 5:19

Do you know why bees hum? It’s because they can’t remember the words!

Ironically, that old joke reminds me of a serious story I read about a man awaiting heart bypass surgery. He was aware that people die during surgery. As he thought about all that could go wrong, he felt very much alone.

Then an orderly walked into his room to take him to surgery. As the young man began to push his gurney along the corridor, the patient heard him humming an ancient Irish hymn, “Be Thou My Vision.” It prompted his memories of lush green fields and the ancient stone ruins of Ireland, the land of his birth. The hymn flooded his soul like a fresh breath of home. When the orderly finished with that song, he hummed Horatio Spafford’s hymn, “It Is Well With My Soul.”

When they stopped outside the surgical suite, the man thanked him for the hymns. “God has used you this day,” he said, “to remove my fears and restore my soul.” “How so?” the orderly asked in surprise. “Your ‘hums’ brought God to me,” the man replied.

“The Lord has done great things for us” (Ps. 126:3). He has filled our heart with song. He may even use our “hums” to restore someone’s soul. — David H. Roper

Be Thou my vision, O Lord of my heart—
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art;
Thou my best thought, by day or by night—
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light. —Irish hymn
© Chatto and Windus, Ltd., London.


Praise flows freely from the choir of the redeemed.
