August 31, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the third chapter of 1 Thessalonians and one chapter of Isaiah.

August 31: 1 Thessalonians 3, Isaiah 50 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

1 Thessalonians 3 tells of Paul’s concern for their faith and he is encouraged by Timothy’s report. The chapter ends with a prayer that their love may increase.

Isaiah 50 continues elaborating about the Servant. The two last verses has meant much in my life: “ Who is among you that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.  Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.”
