A Week of Travel

This past week (Monday through Friday) was spent in southern California on business. As a result my time in Scripture was less than normal. Here are a few thoughts:
  • In Judges 15 the Spirit of God came upon Sampson with such power he killed 1000 men with a donkey jawbone. Then in Judges 16 the details of Sampson’s demise are detailed as he becomes a victim of “love”
  • In John 2 Jesus performs his first miracle by turning water into wine. I thought it an interesting statement when it says that Jesus did not entrust himself to men because he knew them.
  • Jesus personally teaches Nicodemus to believe in Him and to have eternal life (John 3)
  • Judges 19:17 “Where are you going? Where did you come from?” How would you answer?
  • Judges 20 illustrates how one act of violence can cause such great damage
  • Jesus spent time with his disciples and baptized people (John 3:22)
  • Proverbs 14:23 states that hard work brings profit and mere talk leads to poverty
Also this week I transitioned from the book of Judges to the book of Ruth in my Old Testament reading.

Blessings to you.
