away from home reading schedule

If you haven’t been (a regular) part of this … don’t worry. You can jump  in at any time.

tomorrow (Friday 31st July) is a grace day. Play catch up – dip into the Old Testament and read one of the psalms for example – or simply go back through one the letters and reflect on what Father God has been pouring out in recent weeks.

I will be away at camp for the next week … and shock horror without internet access up – there so I am posting the schedule in advance.

Mon 3.8 1 Tim 1
Tues 4.8 ch 2
Weds 5.8 ch 3
Th 6.8 ch 4
Fri 7.8  ch 5
either Sat 8.8 OR Monday 10 chapter 6

ok?

Stands to reason that I won’t be commenting on 1 Tim but I will be reading.

2 Tim will be Tuesday – Friday 11- 15th August.

a new day a new book

Today we’ll look at Paul’s letter to Philemon

Philemon

So who was Philemon anyway?
Philemon lived in Colosse and like other rich men in his era he was a slave owner. When he was converted and became a believer the members of his household followed him (according to normal practice in that day) that included Onesimus a former runaway slave.
What does Paul’s personal letter to Philemon say to you today.
Suggestions for reading.

1. Read the passage until you feel something spark. Stop there. Write down the verse and meditate on it. What might God be saying to you at this time through His word?

2. Later read through the whole chapter … note down what seems important to you and any questions that the passage raises in you.

3. Leave a comment if you wish to. Be blessed!

slow down …

Today we look at the second chapter in 2 Thessalonians
Feel free to post comments after you’ve read and meditated. I’ve posted some questions in the first comment which may /may not be of help. But read first! And remember to stop reading at the first verse that catches your attention. Make a note of it. Ask yourself What is God saying to me through that? Then carry on reading the whole of the chapter.

2 Thessalonians

This coming week (Monday-Wednesday) we’ll look at the Paul’s second letter to the people in Thessalonika.

This Epistle was (probably) written not long after Paul’s first letter to encourage persecuted believers, to urge them to remain in the faith and correct some misunderstandings about Jesus’ second coming.
And on Thursday we’ll dip into the short letter from Paul to Philemon.

As earlier please feel free to read in any language and from any translation you prefer.
