August 3 – Daily Notes – Amanda

connecting

Today we finish up Romans and you’ll notice Paul ends by trying to connect believers together. In most of his letter conclusions he attempts to connect the churches with other believers he’s worked with. We should take a note here. It’s important, as believers, to be connected with other believers.

2 Chronicles 33:14-34:33:

  • 1- Strangely, Josiah is not the youngest king to ever start his reign. Joash started ruling at age 7.
  • 8-13 – Unfaithful kings tended to let the temple fall into disrepair. Both boy kings took the offerings of the people to put it to temple reparations.
  • 27-28 – Even though the people had been evil, the king still had love for them and would have been pained to see them suffer.

Romans 16:8-27:

  • 8-16 – In Paul’s conclusion to the Romans, he is doing his best to connect the believers with others they might encounter.
  • 17-19 – Satan does not like it when people are faithful and make faithful decisions. He tries to deceive and turn them with things and people who seem holy-ish.

Psalm 26:1-12:

  • 2 – This is a pretty scary prayer to pray. This is inviting God to look into all the part of us we normally try to hide.

Proverbs 20:19:

  • Often the person who tells you great gossip will tell yours as well. Better not to associate with them at all.
