index:BIBLEREADINGPLAN1 May6 Two calves, one resurrected Christ. Our calling by Christ is simple, to preach repentance and the remission of sins to all the nations, beginning with Jerusalem. The calling by the peoples is to make their own burden lighter. For this burden they will willingly consent to evil kings, to false idols, to injustice and oppression and divisions amongst their own. They most want to do what is right in their own eyes but, this leads them to the corrupted civil mechanisms that they suffer under so. They are easily swayed in this direction just as sheep. They accuse us as being the same but we at least have the proof of liberation, evidences of the workings of our Lord Jesus Christ.
index:BIBLEREADPLAN1 May15 Teachable moments. A sad day today when Israel is made captive and Judah has taken a sharp turn in the same direction. Jesus uses the occasion of the crowds hunger as a teachable moment to Phillip. God has not given up on Israel, Israel has not for a long time listened to God during such moments, now they will have to. Phillip will miss the mark, Andrew will as well, neither really knows yet what the Lord is getting at, but they will soon learn and remember. Judah is now at one of those moments given what has just happened to Israel. And will they miss the mark? Will we? How will we respond?
index:BIBLEREADPLAN1 May26 Father and Son. We read today of a promise made to David by God. We read of a Shepherd whose voice is known by his sheep, who would give his life for his sheep. If a son whose throne will be established forever, was this throne Solomons? Certainly not. Who was it the He would be a father unto and a son unto him? A throne forever? Jesus claimed to be that Son, that His throne would be established forever not only for the Hebrew fold but for the fold of gentile believers to follow. Any other shepherd would be a thief.
