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 19: 1-22
The soldiers took Jesus and crucified him. He said, “It is finished.” He gave up his spirit. A soldier pierced his side with a spear.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: 2 Chronicles 34-36
Josiah became king. He repaired the temple and had the law read out. Huldah said, “The LORD says: You will be buried in peace.”
Josiah celebrated the Passover. He appointed priests to their duties and provided offerings. Then he attacked Neco and was killed.
Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin and Zedekiah ruled. Then Nebuchadnezzar burned the temple and took Judah captive for seventy years.
