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 21
Jesus appeared as the disciples were fishing. He said to Peter, “Do you love me? Feed my sheep.” The beloved disciple has testified.
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Ezra 6-8
Darius issued a decree: “The cost of the temple shall come from the treasury.” The temple was completed and the Israelites celebrated.
Ezra went up to Jerusalem to teach the law. Artaxerxes wrote: “I decree that whatever Ezra needs shall be done.” So I was encouraged.
I assembled the family heads from Babylon and gave the gifts for the temple to the Levites. We came to Jerusalem and made offerings.
