Thursday, April 6th: 1 Samuel 4-6; Luke 9:1-17 ~ Deena

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 1 Samuel 4-6; Luke 9:1-17

In today's NT reading one part that stood out to me was in verse 3:
He told them: “Take nothing for the journey—no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra shirt.
Jesus is sending out His disciples to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal people. They didn't know how long they were going for or where they would all travel, yet they went! With only the clothes on their back! I don't know about you, but when I pack for a trip, even one night, I have a bag of stuff I take with me.
How much value do we place on our material possessions and what we think we need? Needs and wants are very different things and our society has lost sight of what's important, myself included! What we need to focus on is Jesus! JESUS IS ENOUGH!!

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage:  1 Samuel 7-9; Luke 9:18-36

So true - Jesus is enough!

In our OT passage, God used the Philistines to punish the Israelites but still showed the Philistines that He was God through a series of miracles with the ark of the covenant- His name will always be glorified!
