Today’s readings.. (1 Chronicles 18,19), (Ezekiel 30), (Galatians 5,6)

     Modern pictures often portray contrasting colours.  They rather hit you in the eye, whites and yellows, set against blues, blacks and reds.   This is particularly the case in advertising, as they try to grab our attention.

     Our reading today in Galatians does not set colours in contrast – it sets human behaviour!  It describes the good things in human behaviour that our God and our Saviour Jesus are looking to see. These are “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (5 v.22-23)

     The things that God and Jesus hate to see are “sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality … jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries … envy, drunkenness, orgies and things like that” (5 v.19-21)

     Paul’s warning about the second list is “I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God”

     There is no middle way!  It’s either a broad way, which the majority follow, or the narrow way.  The ecclesia at Laodicea was condemned because it was neither one thing or the other, it was “lukewarm” (Rev. 3 v.16)   So many are lukewarm today – the whole gospel that seems to be proclaimed is ‘love your neighbour as yourself and never do anyone any wrong’. That is good, it is a vital part of the foundation we set in place in accepting Christ, but that foundation has to be built upon.

     There is real true joy and peace when we join together to follow the narrow way in contrast to the “emptiness” of humanity today – for the narrow way – and the truth of God’s word with which that way is ‘paved’ (such as knowing the real nature of life after death in God’s kingdom) is what our Saviour looks to see in us and loves those who walk along that way. Are you walking so that he loves you?

A small group of young Christadelphian brothers have taken the time to produce this valuable resource for the brotherhood and beyond, they are using the Bible reading planner developed by Brother Robert Roberts called The Bible Companion. The Bible Companion (or Bible Reading Planner) is a guide developed by the Christadelphians to aid reading the Bible. It was first produced by Robert Roberts when he was just 14 years of age, in about 1853, and revised by him over a number of years into its current format. Most Christadelphians use this plan each day and it was designed to help you read the old testament once and the new testament twice each year. These readings which we feature are recorded using the KJV or the NKJV of the Bible and we hope will be helpful to those who may struggle with time or who have poor eyesight.
