Bible Challenge Week 46 November 18th-24th
Weekly Word from Bishop Barker for Week 45
This week in the Hebrew scriptures we will read from the Book of Amos as well as from Psalms 109-114. In the New Testament we will continue reading on in the Gospel According to Saint Matthew.
– At the beginning of our week (Amos, Chapter 3 vv. 1-8), we hear an echo of the wisdom teachings we read from in Proverbs and Ecclesiastes, in a passage which culminates with this resounding question, “The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy?”
Is there injustice, sadness or sin evident in your experience right now that calls out for a prophetic word or action? Could it be that God is calling you to prophesy?
– On Tuesday we’ll read Psalm 110. Christians have long taken this psalm as a prophetic text because of it’s celebration of a particularly powerful, mighty and just monarch. What is your favorite religious song or hymn? What message does it contain about the person of Jesus and who he is for you?
– On Wednesday, we will read Saint Matthew’s account of the parable of the sower as an introduction to several parables about the kingdom of heaven. Where in your life do you experience a real foretaste of God’s heavenly kingdom? Can you spend more time this week with the people – or in the places – that bear that gift to you?
Please consider inviting a friend to join us in our read.
May each and everyone one of us be blessed by the Word this week!
In love and Faith –
+ Bishop Barker
