In the morning let us prepare for the new day with the words of the New Testament and in the evening let us reflect on how God moves in the lives of his people.
Morning Reading from the New Testament: Luke 2: 1-24
Mary gave birth in Bethlehem. Angels sent shepherds to see the child. Jesus was presented at the temple. He grew in wisdom and stature.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Joshua 4-6
The LORD told Joshua to set up memorial stones from the Jordan. When the priests brought the ark up to the bank the waters returned.
The LORD told Joshua to circumcise the men. They called the place Gilgal. Joshua met the commander of the LORD’s army and bowed down.
The LORD said that the army should march around Jericho. On the seventh day they shouted and the walls fell. They destroyed the city.
