2 Chronicles 24:1-25:28 ~ Romans 12:1-21 ~ Psalm 22:19-31 ~ Proverbs 20:8-10Today is July 29th. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It is my pleasure and my honor to be here with you today, reading from the scriptures. We’re reading from the New International Version this week, continuing in the book of 2 Chronicles in the Old Testament. (Bible verse references for today’s reading above.) Commentary: Alright, the apostle Paul is unpacking some more things in the book of Romans today. Romans is chock-full. Winding sentences and long paragraphs sometimes, yes, but it’s chock-full of kind of fundamental things that we believe as those who have come to know the Risen Christ. One of the really important things that is really something...

This Is Our Future

This Is Our Future

00:00 It’s the great company at the party in Titanic that brings such happy tears. It’s the boys making it safely home in Apollo 13. It’s Maximus reunited with his family. So the fellowship finds Gandalf alive—no longer Gandalf the Grey, fallen beyond recovery in the mines of Moria, but Gandalf the White, whom death can never touch again. So Frodo and Sam are rescued from the slopes of Mount Doom, and when they wake, it is to a bright new morn. This is our future. After he laid down his life for us, Jesus was laid in a tomb. He was buried just like any other dead person. Family and friends mourned. Enemies rejoiced. And most of the world went on with business as usual, clueless to the Epic around them. Then, after three days, also at dawn,...

2 Chronicles 24-25 Joash Repairs the Temple(A)(B) 24 Joash was seven years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem forty years. His mother’s name was Zibiah; she was from Beersheba. 2 Joash did what was right in the eyes of the Lord(C) all the years of Jehoiada the priest. 3 Jehoiada chose two wives for him, and he had sons and daughters. 4 Some time later Joash decided to restore the temple of the Lord. 5 He called together the priests and Levites and said to them, “Go to the towns of Judah and collect the money(D) due annually from all Israel,(E) to repair the temple of your God. Do it now.” But the Levites(F) did not act at once. 6 Therefore the king summoned Jehoiada the chief priest and said to him, “Why haven’t you...

2 Chronicles 21:1-23:21 ~ Romans 11:13-36 ~ Psalm 22:1-18 ~ Proverbs 20:7Today is July 28th. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian. I am excited to be here with you today, glad that we could come in out of whatever we’re doing and just still the world and orient ourselves properly toward the heart of God through his Word. This week we’re reading from the New International Version and we’re in the book of 2 Chronicles from our Old Testament reading. (Bible verse references for today’s reading above.) Prayer: Jesus, we see the echoes of your life and your sacrifice in the psalm today. We even hear your words from the cross calling to the Father and we are reminded once again what it cost for our souls. We are once again reminded and...

You Are So Vitally Needed

You Are So Vitally Needed

00:00 The kingdom of God will not advance as it needs to advance without women rising up and playing their role. The transformation and healing of a man requires the presence, strength, and mercy of a woman. Men will not become the men they are meant to be without godly women pouring into their lives. Women will not become who they are meant to be without the strength, encouragement, and wisdom of other women nurturing their lives. Yes, it’s been hard. But that’s because you are so vitally needed. Your valiant feminine heart is needed today in the lives of those you live with, work with, and love. The hour is late. Want more? Get your copy of Becoming Myself today View the discussion thread.

2 Chronicles 21-23 21 Then Jehoshaphat rested with his ancestors and was buried with them in the City of David. And Jehoram(A) his son succeeded him as king. 2 Jehoram’s brothers, the sons of Jehoshaphat, were Azariah, Jehiel, Zechariah, Azariahu, Michael and Shephatiah. All these were sons of Jehoshaphat king of Israel.[a] 3 Their father had given them many gifts(B) of silver and gold and articles of value, as well as fortified cities(C) in Judah, but he had given the kingdom to Jehoram because he was his firstborn son. Jehoram King of Judah(D) 4 When Jehoram established(E) himself firmly over his father’s kingdom, he put all his brothers(F) to the sword along with some of the officials of Israel. 5 Jehoram was thirty-two years old when he became...

2 Chronicles 19:1-20:37 ~ Romans 10:14-11:12 ~ Psalm 21:1-13 ~ Proverbs 20:4-6Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. Today is the 27th of July and we greet a new week. Our tradition around here and it’s always been our tradition is to read from a new translation each week and this week we’ll be reading from the New International Version. It gives us a vast bouquet as we pick up the story right where we left off and it allows us to experience in a year all of the vast amount of scholarship that has been put into translating God’s Word into the English language. (Bible verse references for today’s reading above.) Commentary: So we’re reading this story of King Jehoshaphat and his dilemma and I’m seeing all of this kind of play out in...
