Moments with God

New Testament Bible Reading Plan

Day 27

Oh, that my actions would consistently

reflect your decrees!

Then I will not be ashamed

when I compare my life with your commands. Psalm 119:5-6 

Being in align with God’s will is of primary importance to all Christians. We need to do our best to follow the example set by Jesus in the New Testament as we walk on this earth. Let’s see what Jesus is sharing with us in our reading for today to help us be more like him. 

Today’s Reading Assignment – Luke 14 – 15 

Jesus’ teaching about humility really stood out for me in my reading of Luke 14. To be more like Jesus, we need to be humble! 

Bible Reading Plan Day 27

“7 When Jesus noticed that all who had come to the dinner were trying to sit in the seats of honor near the head of the table, he gave them this advice: 8 “When you are invited to a wedding feast, don’t sit in the seat of honor. What if someone who is more distinguished than you has also been invited? 9 The host will come and say, ‘Give this person your seat.’ Then you will be embarrassed, and you will have to take whatever seat is left at the foot of the table! 

10 “Instead, take the lowest place at the foot of the table. Then when your host sees you, he will come and say, ‘Friend, we have a better place for you!’ Then you will be honored in front of all the other guests. 11 For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” 

12 Then he turned to his host. “When you put on a luncheon or a banquet,” he said, “don’t invite your friends, brothers, relatives, and rich neighbors. For they will invite you back, and that will be your only reward. 13 Instead, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, and the blind. 14 Then at the resurrection of the righteous, God will reward you for inviting those who could not repay you.” Luke 14:7-14 

Study Questions for Luke 14

Where should one find a seat when you are invited to a special occasion? (8-10)

Who should you invite to a feast if you want to be blessed? (12-14)

What were the excuses given by those who refused to go to the supper? (18-20)

What two illustrations did Jesus use to show one should “count the cost” before becoming a disciple? (28,31)

“3 So Jesus told them this story: 4 “If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them gets lost, what will he do? Won’t he leave the ninety-nine others in the wilderness and go to search for the one that is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he will joyfully carry it home on his shoulders. 6 When he arrives, he will call together his friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Rejoice with me because I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 In the same way, there is more joy in heaven over one lost sinner who repents and returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven’t strayed away!” Luke 15:3-7 

Study Questions for Luke 15

What caused Jesus to tell the parables of the lost sheep, lost coin, and lost son being taught? (1-2)

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
