Today, we read one chapter in the Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians and three chapters in second Chronicles.
1 Corinthians 12. The Apostle Paul instructed the Corinthians there are different spiritual gifts, but the same God works in all of them. There is unity in diversity, and yet all Christians are one body in Christ, one body with many parts and all are important for “by one spirit are we all baptized into one body” so now Paul says “ye are the body of Christ.” As to gifts there is a more excellent way, which will be revealed in the next chapter.
2 Chronicles 18. The prophet Micaiah warned Ahab of Israel,but Ahab listened to false prophets instead. The result was that Ahab died in battle.
2 Chronicles 19. King Jehoshaphat returned to Jerusalem and instituted a number of reforms.
2 Chronicles 20. Because Jehoshaphat turned to God, Ammon, Moab and Mount Seir were defeated and there was peace until the end of Jehoshaphat’s reign, but he made an alliance with Israel to build trading ships, and they were destroyed.
