Saturday, February 4th: Exodus 34-35; Matthew 22:23-46 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Exodus 34-35; Matthew 22:23-46

I love how Jesus is able to stun the leaders, who are trying to trap Him, into utter silence. During one of these Q&A's we find this passage....

“"Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets."”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭22:36-40‬ ‭ESV‬‬

It's actually quite simple to understand but not so easy to put into practice. In fact, it's impossible without the strength of the Holy Spirit. Thankfully, if we are believers, we are united to Him and the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lies within us - but we need to remember to tap into it!

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:  Exodus 36-38; Matthew 23:1-22

I too like Jesus is always able to quiet the crowds with His wisdom.

Then Moses said to the people of Israel, "See, the LORD has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with all craftsmanship, - Exodus 35:30-31

These verses reminded me that God has given me gifts and talents and He is expecting me to use them for His glory.
