The Bible challenge: Day 148

The scriptures read are 1 Chronicles 25-27, Psalm 119:145-176 and Romans 10.

1 Chronicles 25-27. A breakdown of the singers and musicians in the temple. Asaph should ring a bell; his name is on a lot of the psalms.

Then we get the security detail, down to who guarded what gate! Then we get the bean counters and bookkeepers.

Next we get the military commanders and troop strength, the tribal administrators, the supply officers and the king's counselors.

Psalm 119:145-176. The psalmist keeps switching back and forth from asking God to rescue him from his enemies to declaring his adherence to God's rules.

Romans 10. Paul talks about how easy it is to have a trusting relationship with God if you just stop trying to do it all yourself. You don't have to hike up to heaven and drag Christ down to earth or mount a rescue mission to hell for him. But not everyone's got the message. How could they if we don't tell them?
