The Bible Challenge: Day 143

The scriptures read are 1 Chronicles 13-15, Psalm 119:1-32 and Acts 6.

1 Chronicles 13. The Reader's Digest account of David's early days and his bringing the Ark of the Covenant to Jerusalem.

Psalm 119:1-32. This is the longest psalm and chapter in the Bible. It is an acrostic psalm, with each section beginning with a letter of the Hebrew alphabet; it is also a meditation on God's law.

Romans 6. Paul uses a lot of metaphors to describe how our old life is dead and gone but living in Christ frees you from all that. He says baptism is like being buried with Jesus and coming out from the water is like being raised with Christ. Your sins were killed on the cross. And the result is freedom--freedom from slavishly following the desires of raw human nature, free to love God back after all he's done for us.
