Sunday, March 12th: Deuteronomy 16-18; Mark 13:1-20 ~ Emma

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Deuteronomy 16-18; Mark 13:1-20

Old Testament:

Passover was set in place to remind the Israelites of when God freed them from Egypt. So we, too, should remember the things God has done for us and praise Him for it. 

New Testament:

"And everyone will hate you because you are my followers. But the one who endures to the end will be saved." - Mark 13:13

We know this hate very well. It's always a struggle to share our faith with non-believers, in fear of what they might say or do to us. But even so, we need to continue to share our faith. We need to "endure to the end" so we can be saved. 

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year PassageDeuteronomy 19-21; Mark 13:21-37

Only he must not acquire many horses for himself or cause the people to return to Egypt in order to acquire many horses, since the LORD has said to you, 'You shall never return that way again.' - Deuteronomy 17:16

Good point that the Passover was meant to be reminder for the Israelites, and like how this verse ends, they (we) are to not go back that way again.

We need to consciously remember God's faithfulness, and never look with longing on the life of sin we left behind.
