October 3, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the first chapter of Titus and two chapters of Jeremiah.

October 3: Titus 1, Jeremiah 37, Jeremiah 38 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Titus 1. After the customary greeting, the apostle Paul instructs Titus to appoing elders ald lists the qualifications for elders and their duties. Be careful, some Cretans are corrupt!

Jeremiah 37. Zedekiah clinged to the vain hope that the Chaldeans would be defeated. Jeremiah prophesied otherwise, so he was put in prison.

Jeremiah 38. Jeremiah was in the dungeon and near death so they pulled him up. Zedekiah feared for his life, and Jeremiah’s advice was: Give in to Babylon and you will live.
