Renewal Lab Daily Bible Readings

 

  

Check out the bible readings for this week.

One of the ways we can all participate in the Church Renewal Lab on an ongoing basis is through reading one chapter of the Bible each day, five days out of seven, and pondering a question intended to help us think through what we’ve just read and how it applies both to our life together and our life as part of our broader neighborhoods and community. Imagine what God might do through us as we ponder and pray together! With that in mind, here are the readings and questions for the week of July 29 - August 4, 2018

Day 1

Read: John 2:12-25

Questions to ponder: Originally the sellers and money-changers were set up to provide sacrificial animals for Jews who came to the temple from a long distance, but over time the practice devolved into a racket. If you were one of the sellers or money-changers in this story, how would you have reacted to Jesus’ actions? If you were a disciple, how would you have reacted? Where in your life do you need Jesus to do some “housecleaning”?

Day 2

Read: John 3:1-15

Questions to ponder: Based on this passage, what kind of person is Nicodemus? Why did he come to Jesus at night? Why do you think Jesus was so direct with Nicodemus?

Day 3

Read: John 3:1-15

Questions to ponder: What two ideas about birth are Jesus and Nicodemus thinking of? What point is Jesus making when He compares spiritual birth to the wind? How does Jesus account for Nicodemus’ lack of understanding? What claims does Jesus make about Himself here?

Day 4

Read: John 3:1-21

Questions to ponder: According to vv 16-18, what is the condition for obtaining eternal life? What stands out about God in vv 16-18? About what He wants to do? According to v 21, how does true faith in Jesus Christ show itself?

Day 5

Read: John 3:16

Ponder: “Consider the sun as an analogy. The sun only shines, just as God only loves. It is the nature of the sun to shine, to offer warmth and light. And it is the nature of God to love. We are free to get away from the sun—we can lock ourselves in a dark room—but we do not keep the sun from shining just because we put ourselves in a place where it cannot reach us. So it is with God’s love. We can reject it, but God keeps on loving us. No matter what our choices, God still loves. And because God loves us, a relationship with God is possible.”*

Questions to ponder: What comfort does the above quote give you?  What challenge?
