August 14, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the second chapter of Philippians and two chapters of Isaiah.

August 14: Philippians 2, Isaiah 14, Isaiah 15 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Philippians 2. Paul urges the believers to imitate the humility of Christ. Verses 7-11 are in the form of a hymn and shows how Jesus, even though he always is God, emptied himself and became obedient to the cross, even unto death. Look at that! They should work out their salvation with fear and trembling. Yes, salvation is past tense (for by grace have you been saved), present tense (work out your own salvation) and future tense (you will be saved). God is independent of time (He exised before time and space and created both). Then Paul ends with talking about Timothy and Epaphroditus.

Isaiah 14 speaks of the return of Israel to their own land, the fall of Babylon and the haughtiness of Lucifer. It ends with prophecies about Assyria and the Philistines.

Isaiah 15 is a prophecy against Moab.
