July 25, read through the Bible in a year.

Today we read the fourth chapter of Galatians  and two chapters of Job.

July 25: Galatians 4, Job 29, Job 30 (click on the chapter to begin reading).

Galatians 4. Paul tells the Galatians they are children of God and heirs of the promise, but still, he fears for the Church since they prefer the law over the promise. He explains it through two covenants,  one in bondage through the law, the other in freedom through the Spirit.

Job 29. Job gives his best defense, and recalls the good old days when God was with him.

Job 30: “But now they that are younger than I have me in derision, whose fathers I would have disdained to have set with the dogs of my flock.” Things are not going well for Job.
