September 3, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the last chapter of 1 Thessalonians and two chapters of Isaiah.

September 3: 1 Thessalonians 5, Isaiah 54, Isaiah 55 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

1 Thessalonians 5 speaks of the Day of the Lord, no one knows the day or time. Then Paul gives final exhortations, among them are “Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

Isaiah 54. After the gigantic chapter 53, writing about the sin-bearing, suffering servant the narrative switches back to God’s servant, Israel, and the Covenant of Peace. It enrs with “no weapon formed against you shall prosper”

Isaiah 55 is the invitation to abundant life. Remember this: “ For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
