April 6: Reading the Holy Bible in a year.

Mark 7:1-23, Mark 7. Jesus explained what is clean and what is unclean.

Ecclesiastes 11 explains the value of diligence. One advice: Seek God early in life.

Ecclesiastes 12. “Remember now thy creator in the days of your youth“. “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

Psalm 31, of David. As was so often the case, David was in trouble. He cried out about his woes to God, and yet, the Psalm ends with praise and total confidence in God.

Psalm 32, of David. “This was Saint Augustine’s favorite psalm. Augustine had it inscribed on the wall next to his bed before he died in order to meditate on it better.” (James Montgomery Boice)

June 15: Read through the Holy Bible in a year.

Acts 10. Cornelius, a Roman centurion called for Peter to come. That same day  Peter had a vision about eating all food, including unclean food. Peter protested, but the voice in the vision told him “What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.“ Peter followed Cornelius’ servants  from Joppa to Caesarea, where he met Cornelius and presented the Gospel to Cornelius’ household. They all believed,  the Holy Spirit fell on them and they were baptized, and so they became the first gentiles to be converted.

1 Chronicles 16. The Ark was placed in the Tabernacle, and David’s song of thanksgiving is recorded. After that the regular worship resumed.

1 Chronicles 17. David wanted to build a temple for the Lord rather than the tabernacle, and God’s covenant with David was that his son would be allowed to build it.
