Fall! And we're 3/4ths of the way through the New Testament! There is something about the season of Fall and the One Year Bible readings that I just love. I think it is in part because we start to move through several Epistles in the New Testament quickly. While we do move through these Epistles in short order – and many of them are just a few chapters – please don’t brush over them too quickly. There are so many amazing teachings about our Christian faith and how our lives should be transformed as disciples of Jesus’ in these Epistles. Don’t miss these teachings! Maybe I love the fact that we are in the "home-stretch" of our One Year Bible readings. I do want to congratulate each of you for making it this far. Press on toward the finish line here in these last 3 months! Yay God for the season of Fall! (and for those of you participating in the One Year Bible readings in the southern hemisphere – Yay God for Spring! :)
New Testament - Philippians chapter 3 verse 3 is a great teaching from Paul - "For we who worship God in the Spirit are the only ones who are truly circumcised. We put no confidence in human effort. Instead, we boast about what Christ Jesus has done for us." How do you worship God? Do you worship in the Spirit? Do you put no confidence in your own human efforts? Do you today boast to others about what Jesus Christ has done for you?
Bible.org's commentary on today's readings in Philippians chapter 2 titled "A Few Good Men" is at this link.
Worship Video: Today's readings remind me of For King & Country’s song "For God is With Us:"
