A Fresh Pursuit

January 9, 2009

As I’ve entered 2009 – I’m once again making the effort to read through the bible before year’s end.  I started a new reading schedule/plan two years ago and never finished it.  I’m hopeful that this year will be different.  Today’s reading took me to Romans and the Psalms.  Here are a couple of passages with which I took some extra time to process…

Love must be sincere.  Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another before yourselves.  Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.  Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.  Share with God’s people in need.  Practice hospitality.  Live in harmony with one another.  Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position.  Do not be conceited.  Romans 12:9-13, 16

The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul.  The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.  The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart.  The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.  Psalm 19:7-8
