Entering into the last week of my year with the M’Cheyne Bible Reading Plan.
I am thinking next year of doing just the 4th aspect of the plan, focusing on both the New Testament and the Psalms. I’m planning to begin a new series, with just a short post on each chapter, maybe titled A Minute with the Word. Highlighted just one key verse of point, (I am still working on forcing myself to be more brief); but, I may package a week’s worth of daily posts under one Title.
2 Chronicles has a great story of recovering the true faith.
2 Chronicles 30:1 And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and wrote letters also to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, to keep the passover unto the LORD God of Israel.
2Ch 30:25 And all the congregation of Judah, with the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation that came out of Israel, and the strangers that came out of the land of Israel, and that dwelt in Judah, rejoiced.
2Ch 30:26 So there was great joy in Jerusalem: for since the time of Solomon the son of David king of Israel there was not the like in Jerusalem.
2Ch 30:27 Then the priests the Levites arose and blessed the people: and their voice was heard, and their prayer came up to his holy dwelling place, even unto heaven
Revelation and Zechariah might not be the normal Christmas readings, but they do help create the full story of God’s plan for salvation.
Revelation 16:15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
Revelation 16:7 And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.
Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
