Freedom and our Inheritance are found in Bible reading!

I enjoy reading aloud the scriptures and I enjoy listening to the scriptures being read. I do both depending on my day and time restraints. In twenty-some minutes I can listen to five chapters we are reading as I drive. When I have more time, I linger in the word enjoying fellowship with the Word.  I see Bible reading as the bread from heaven, every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God. The Logos is the entire conversation God has had with man through the Man, Christ Jesus.

The more I read and listen to the Bible I find I am becoming intrinsically linked to Jesus Christ—the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The Bible is life and health. The Bible is water that washes and bread that nourishes. The Bible is Truth.

Luke 15 – 21

Chapter 15 is the rich teaching of the Prodigal Sons. Chapters 16 and 17 bring insights and experiences with Jesus and the kingdom of God. In Chapter 18, Jesus pleads for men to always pray and never lose heart while He recounts Kingdom values. In Chapter 19, Jesus enters Jerusalem and weeps over her blindness. In Chapters 20 and 21, Jesus is being questioned by the rulers as He calls them to task for their hypocrisies.



Galatians 5 – 6

Freedom and Inheritance in Christ apart from circumcision and the flesh. Waking in the Spirit brings us into the fruit of the Spirit and stops the lusts of the flesh from ruling. Bear one another’s burdens and bear our own load. Never give up in sowing, God is not mocked, whatever we sow we reap, and wherever we sow to we reap from. All in due season.


Ephesians 1 – 6

This is the Genesis letter on the breath of our salvation. The first three chapters are about the mystery of God. The last three chapters are about the mystery of working and walking out our salvation with each other. In this letter, we learn that we must first sit to be able to walk, and then to stand. We are “seated with Christ in heavenly places” (Ephesians 2:6). We are to “walk worthy of the calling with which we were called” (Ephesians 4:1). “And having done all, to stand” (Ephesians 6:13).



Joshua 17 – 24

In Chapters 17 through 21 the remainder of the land is given by lot to the remaining tribes, along with cities of refuge (safety for those who accidentally kill another), and cities of the Levites. “Not a word failed of any good thing which the Lord had spoken to the house of Israel. All came to pass” (Joshua 21:45). The eastern tribes’ men of war return to their inheritance east of Jordan. Chapter 23 is Joshua’s farewell address followed by the covenant Joshua had Israel make to serve the Lord at Shechem:

“Now therefore,” he said, “put away the foreign gods which are among you, and incline your heart to the Lord God of Israel.” And the people said to Joshua, “The Lord our God we will serve, and His voice we will obey!” (Joshua 24:23, 24)



Psalm 110 – 115

Psalm 110 is the most quoted Psalm in the New Testament. It is first used by Jesus to stop the Pharisees’ challenges, then by Peter to validate the resurrection on Pentecost, and many other places, like Hebrews. Psalms 111 through 115 are short blasts of God’s greatness and majesty!



Ezekiel 24 – 29

Ezekiel is given the parable of Jerusalem as a cooking pot. Ezekiel is then told in the morning that his wife he loves, the delight of his soul, will die that evening and he is not to mourn nor weep. Ezekiel tells the people this that morning and in the evening she dies. The Lord uses this to tell again that He will profane His sanctuary, the delight of their souls, and they too will not mourn or weep. There are proclamations against Ammon and Tyre in chapters 25-27. Chapter 28 is a proclamation against the prince of Tyre that becomes the lamentation of Lucifer becoming Satan (verses 11-19). Chapter 29 is a proclamation against Egypt.
