Ecclesiastes 4:1-6:12 ~ 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:7 ~ Psalm 47:1-9 ~ Proverbs 22:16Today is September 3rd. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I’m Brian. It is a pleasure and an honor, like every day that we can get together like this and take a further step forward into the scriptures and through the scriptures this year. So we’re trying on this new month and kind of fitting into it and getting ourselves established in this, the ninth month of the year and we’re also kind of getting ourselves settled into the book of Ecclesiastes from our Old Testament reading, so we’ll pick up there, reading from the New Life Version. Prayer: Thank you, Father, for your Word. Oh, it’s such a beautiful gift that you have given us. We often thank you for...

Ecclesiastes 4-6 4 Then I saw all the bad powers that were ruling under the sun. I saw the tears of the people who were suffering under these powers, with no one to comfort them. Those who made it hard for them had the power. But the people had no one to comfort them. 2 So I thought that those who are already dead are better off than those who are still living. 3 But better than both is the one who has never been, who has never seen the wrong that is done under the sun. 4 I have seen that all the work done is because a man wants what his neighbor has. This also is for nothing, like trying to catch the wind. 5 The fool folds his hands and has no food to eat. 6 One hand full of rest is better than two hands full of work and trying to catch the wind. 7 Then I looked...

Ecclesiastes 1:1-3:22 ~ 2 Corinthians 6:1-13 ~ Psalm 46:1-11 ~ Proverbs 22:15Today is September 2nd. Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. I am Brian and it is a thrill to be here with you today around our global campfire that is burning bright with the Word of God. We all come in out of the cold and dark and warm ourselves together, orienting ourselves to God through his Word. And I love it and so it is great to be here with you today. We are spending our week reading from the New Life Version and we finished the book of Job yesterday. We’re kind of in a section of the Bible where we’re really diving into some deep human emotions that are maybe less of the happy variety and more of the wrestling variety which is how our life works. So we’re moving...

Born for Love

Born for Love

00:00 We are loved. Born out of love, into love, to know love, and to be loved. Yes, we were born into a fallen, sorry world, which is at the same time more lovely than any fairy tale. It is both. And in this beautiful, heartbreaking world, God—the eternal, omniscient, amazing One—loves human beings. Including you. Especially you. Want more? Get your copy of Becoming Myself today!

Ecclesiastes 1-3 Life Is of No Worth 1 These are the words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem. 2 “It is of no use,” says the Preacher. “It is of no use! All is for nothing.” 3 What does a man get for all his work which he does under the sun? 4 People die and people are born, but the earth stays forever. 5 The sun rises and the sun sets, and travels in a hurry to the place where it rises. 6 The wind blows to the south and goes around to the north. It goes around and around, and returns again on its way. 7 All the rivers flow into the sea, yet the sea is not full. And they return again to the place from which the rivers flow. 8 All things are tiring. Man is not able to tell about them. The eye never has enough to see, and the ear is never filled...

Job 40:1-42:17 ~ 2 Corinthians 5:11-21 ~ Psalm 45:1-17 ~ Proverbs 22:14Welcome to the Daily Audio Bible. Today is September 1st. Here we are. A brand new month to unpack and unfold before us and live out together as we continue the journey through the scriptures this year and so, of course, today we begin our 9th month together in the year 2015. It is good to be here with you today. Lots of fun stuff to talk about. I’ll get to that in a little bit, but first we’re reading from the New Life Version this week. We’re, of course, reading from the book of Job and yesterday God began to speak into everything everyone has been talking about. We’ll pick up today where we left off yesterday. Commentary: We concluded the book of Job today and it is...

Job 40-42 The Lord Is Speaking to Job 40 Then the Lord said to Job, 2 “Will one who finds fault not agree with the All-powerful? He who speaks strong words against God, let him answer.” 3 Job answered the Lord and said, 4 “See, I am not important. What can I answer You? I put my hand on my mouth. 5 I have spoken once, and I cannot answer; even twice, and I have no more to say.” 6 Then the Lord answered out of the storm, and said, 7 “Get ready like a man. I will ask you, and you answer Me. 8 Will you say what I decide is wrong? Will you say that I have done wrong, that you may be made right? 9 Do you have an arm like God? Can you thunder with a voice like His? 10 “Dress yourself with shining-greatness and great power. Cover yourself with honor and greatness. 11...
