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: John 5: 1-24
Jesus healed a man at Bethesda. He said, “The Son only does what he sees the Father doing. My works and the Scriptures bear witness.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 2 Kings 9-11
Elisha sent a prophet to anoint Jehu. Jehu killed Joram and Ahaziah. Eunuchs threw Jezebel out of the window and dogs ate her body.
Jehu sent a letter and had Ahab’s sons killed. He killed Ahaziah’s brothers and all the worshippers of Baal. Hazael defeated Israel.
Athaliah destroyed the royal family but Jehosheba hid Joash. Jehoiada had the army proclaim Joash as king and put Athaliah to death.
