Read Scripture Guide for September 9 through September 15

HERE'S HOW:

  1. Grab a Bible. If it fits your style, also grab a journal to write in.

    • Which Bible version is best? The one you read! If you don’t have one, let us know! Print, Online, and Apps are available.

    • Invite family or friends to join you.

  2. Pray! Ask the Holy Spirit to help you as you read. HE WILL.

  3. Check to see if there is a video to watch today

  4. Look up and read the assigned reading for the day.

  5. Look up the assigned Psalm that day: pray it out loud.

  6. Pray! Ask the Father to apply those readings to your life and to help you join Jesus where He is already working. HE WILL.

  7. Rally together each Sunday at Lindwedel Winery at 9:15 am with questions and discussion.

  8. Let's get started!!

September 9

Read Mark 1-2, then Pray Psalm 90. Mark holds nothing back about the purpose of his writing: “This is the beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, The Son of God!” The first quote of Jesus follows: “The time has come”.

September 10

Read Mark 3-4, then Pray Psalm 91. When you read the parable of the sower, take note that we can never “control” the soil, we are simply called to sow the seed. Don’t miss Mark 4:21-25 is immediately after the parable.

September 11

Read Mark 5-6, then Pray Psalm 92. All four Gospels highlight that wherever Jesus went, he encountered evil spirits. How should we react? Mark 5:18-20.


September 12

Read Mark 7-8, then Pray Psalm 93. In Mark 7:6-7 Jesus quotes from Isaiah 29 as he points out the Pharisees and teachers of the law were focused on the wrong things. “Their hearts are far from me…” This is what Jesus is always interested in. He is always challenging us to be interested in this as well.

September 13

Read Mark 9-10, then Pray Psalm 94. Contrast the events at the Transfiguration (9:2-8) and then what happens at the bottom of the mountain (9:14-29), zooming in on verse 24. This is to be our prayer every day!

September 14

Read Mark 11-12, then Pray Psalm 95. Note in Mark 12:18-27 how Jesus defends the promise of the Resurrection the tense of a verb, namely, “I AM the God of Abraham,” rather than “I was…”. Verse 24 should cause us to remain in God’s Word often!

September 15

Read Mark 13-14, then Pray Psalm 96. Despite Jesus’ words in Mark 13:32, prognosticators persist. We are merely called to follow verses 35-36!
