Moments with God
New Testament Bible Reading Plan
Day 35

You rebuke the arrogant;
those who wander from your commands are cursed.
Don’t let them scorn and insult me,
for I have obeyed your laws. Psalm 119:21-22

Ultimately, if we do not follow Jesus…we are following the devil, and God will rebuke us! We serve a just God, as well as a loving God! 

The opposite of humble is arrogant. God has asked us to be humble and when we are not obeying Him, we are arrogant. We feel we know better I do not want to be rebuked or cursed by God! 

I am a Jesus follower and I want to be the person that God created me to be. Let’s purpose together to walk humbly today and meditate on that word, as we read our Bibles today. 

Today’s reading assignment – Matthew 22 and Mark 12

Bible Reading Plan Day 35

“But now, as to whether there will be a resurrection of the dead—haven’t you ever read about this in the Scriptures? Long after Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had died, God said, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.’ So he is the God of the living, not the dead.” Matthew 22:31-32


Study Questions for Matthew 22

What is the main lesson in the parable of the marriage feast? (1-14)

How did the Saduccees err in their understanding of the resurrection? (29-30)

On what two commandments hang the whole law and the prophets? (37-40)

With what question did Jesus stump the Pharisees? (45)

“Jesus also taught: “Beware of these teachers of religious law! For they like to parade around in flowing robes and receive respectful greetings as they walk in the marketplaces. And how they love the seats of honor in the synagogues and the head table at banquets. Yet they shamelessly cheat widows out of their property and then pretend to be pious by making long prayers in public. Because of this, they will be more severely punished.” Mark 12:38-40

Study Questions for Mark 12

How did Jesus answer the question “Is it lawful for us to give tribute unto Caesar or not?”

What can we learn from Jesus’ example of answering “trick questions”? Do people sometimes ask us questions about our faith as though it were ridiculous?

What can we learn from Jesus’ attitude in responding to people who are hostile? How is Jesus open to his critics? How is he somewhat defiant?

How can we depend more on the scriptures since Jesus himself depends so much on them (Mark 12:24)?

What do Jesus’ comments about the widow say to us about wealth, power and giving? How do Jesus’ comments relate to our present financial crisis?

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.
