’13 READ the BIBLE in a YEAR – Today’s Scripture Readings: 2 Samuel 2 / 1 Chronicles 11 & John 2 [NLT]
Reading the Bible does a lot of different things to lots of different people, some read it as story, some read it as history, some think it is a manual to live by. Sometimes we find it enlightening, other times we find it convicting. Some times we question it, other times it questions us. Today it questioned me.
John 2: 23-25 [NLT] Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in him. 24 But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew human nature. 25 No one needed to tell him what mankind is really like.
No one needs to tell Jesus what I’m like, does he find me trustworthy?
