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 16: 16-33
“The Spirit will convict the world of sin. He will guide you into all truth. Your sorrow will turn to joy. I am going to the Father.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 2 Chronicles 23-25
Jehoiada gathered the Levites and anointed the king’s son as king. Athaliah was killed. The people tore down the temple of Baal.
Joash ruled and did right while Jehoiada lived. The priests collected money to repair the temple. Joash was killed by his servants.
Amaziah ruled in Jerusalem. After he slaughtered the Edomites he bowed down to their gods. He challenged Jehoash and was defeated.
