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 4:1-32
Jesus was tempted by Satan in the wilderness. In the synagogue he read out, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me.” He healed all the sick.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Joshua 11-13
The kings of the north joined forces to fight against Israel but the LORD gave Joshua victory. So Joshua took the whole land.
Israel defeated the kings east of the Jordan under Moses and the kings west of the Jordan under Joshua. Thirty-one kings in total.
Now Joshua was old. The LORD said, “Divide the remaining land among the tribes.” Moses had given land to Reuben, Gad and Manasseh.
