Finishing What You've Started
If you’ve been keeping up with your readings, then once you finish these three days of readings, you’ll have completely read through the Bible books of Genesis, Hosea, and Matthew. Congratulations, but don't stop there. There is so much of God's word to read, and remember: It's not merely reading but reading to hear and follow God. As you come to the end of Genesis and Matthew, you’ll come to the end of Jacob’s life and Jesus’ life, but of course, Jesus comes back to life and proves that He’s the Lord.
This week, you’ll read…
GENESIS 48-50: Jacob blesses his sons and dies in Egypt, far from home. Joseph dies in faith that his father’s family will eventually go back to their home in the Promised Land.
PSALMS 13-15: “God, who gets invited to dinner at Your place? How do we get on Your guest list?” (Psalm 15 in The Message Bible) Read this psalm to find out.
MATTHEW 26-28: You’ll see Jesus anointed, betrayed, denied, crucified, buried, and resurrected. Are you bold in your witness of Christ, or are you denying Him with your lips or lifestyle?
