Deuteronomy 28:1-68, Luke 11:14-36, Psalms 77:1-20, Proverbs 12:18
Today is the 5th day of April, welcome to the Daily Audio Bible I am Brian it’s great to be here with you as we step into a brand-new, shiny, sparkly week together. And normally we mark this time. It’s a brand-new week and it’s out in front of us and we get to choose what this week is going to look like. And yeah there’ll be all kinds of things that happen that we didn’t know about or that we weren’t prepared for, but we get to choose in advance how we’re gonna approach how this week is gonna look. And one of the ways that we do that well is to continue this rhythm and day after day after day, allowing God’s word to speak into our lives and inform our days. So, it’s great to be here with you, brand-new week. This week we’ll read from the Christian Standard Bible and we’ll move back into the book of Deuteronomy, the last things Moses has to say before he becomes a part of the history of Israel. And before this week is out, we will conclude this book of Deuteronomy and move into, squarely, into the next generation. But that’s a few days out in front of us. Today, Deuteronomy chapter 28.
Father, we thank You for Your word and we thank You for bringing us safely into this brand-new week. And here we are at this brand-new week and Your word will be the constant thread that leads us through this week. And we invite Your Holy Spirit to speak Your word into the moments that we need to hear. Give us eyes to see and ears to hear Your kingdom in this world transforming us from within so that we can see what You are doing and how we are a part of that story. And Your word will help us with this. And, so, we invite You Holy Spirit into every day of this coming week. Speak to us what we need to know. Challenge us where we need to be challenged. Disrupt and tip over whatever needs to be tipped over. We open ourselves completely to You, especially in this season where we are meditating upon and contemplating the cost of sin, the cost of our separation from You. Yes, we know that You are merciful and kind and compassionate, and You forgive us, but sin only separates us from You. And, so, as we’re contemplating that and as we’re allowing Your word to wash into our lives this week, we invite You to change us from within. Come Holy Spirit we pray. In the name of Jesus, we ask. Amen.

Today is Palm Sunday and this moves us into Holy Week. And maybe Holy Week and an Easter celebration and a Good Friday observance and all in kind of very different ways than maybe we’ve ever done before but here we are in this together. And, so, I’m grateful that we have each other as we continue our journey through the Scriptures. So, yesterday we completed the releasing of a chapter a day of the book Sneezing Jesus, a book that I wrote a few years ago, but man as all this coronavirus stuff started happening, started thinking about it and as things got more and more momentum, as things got amped up and we started separating from each other and all of this, I realized that this is really, really poignant for the…for the times. And, so, it is. And if you haven’t had a chance to…to take advantage of what we’re calling soul care around the Global Campfire this really is a good week to…to go through the chapters of Sneezing Jesus. It just really takes us through the life of Jesus. It gives us a really, really good look at the good news and then how the good news spreads and how it works in our lives. So, be sure to take advantage of that while it’s there.
