Thursday, March 19th: Job 34-35; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Job 34-35; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34

My Life Application Bible says this about our Job passage....

God doesn't sin and is never unjust, Elihu claimed. Throughout this book, Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar, and Elihu all have elements of truth in their speeches. Unfortunately, the nuggets of truth are buried under layers of false assumptions and conclusions. Although we might havea wealth of Bible knowledge and life experiences, we must make sure our conclusions are consistent with all of God's Word, not just parts of it. 

34:21 jumped out at me too....
“For his eyes are on the ways of a man, and he sees all his steps.Nothing is hidden from God.  Not only does He see every deed, and hear every word, He even knows our thoughts and motives.  When we do sin, we are fooling ourselves to think God doesn't know about it.  Amazingly, He loves us and offers us forgiveness despite our sin.  That's one of the many reasons why grace is so amazing.

In our Corinthians passage we see that celebrating the Lord's Supper is both remembering Christ's death, and anticipating His coming again. We cannot let it become simply a pious habit - we need to take communion purposefully and reflectively.

 Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage passage: Job 36-37; 1 Corinthians 12

I think that it is so true that we must know the Bible's whole truth. I think often it's too easy to sway or lean in a way that conforms with our feelings instead of biblical truth. However, I also believe that the truth must be spoken in love or it's message falls on deaf ears. I think about the Westboro Baptist church and how their 'nuggets' of truth are so far buried in the acts and words of hate that they not only alienate people from the truth but they brand all Christians in the same way.
