Daily Meeting Place
Today's Passage: 1 Thessalonians 15: 16-22
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
16. Always be joyful.
17. Never stop praying.
18. Be thankful in all circumstances,
for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
19. Do not stifle the Holy Spirit.
20 Do not scoff at prophecies,
21. but test everything that is said. Hold on to what is good.
22. Stay away from every kind of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 NLT
3rd strategy for familiar passages.
Read the passage from Last to First!
Sometimes we have read a passage of Scripture so many times we can't see it with new eyes.
How can we change the passage without changing the meaning?
What would we see if we take a passage and begin with the last verse and read the verses from Chapter 15.
For example: Chapter 15:22-16.
What a wonderful passage you give us in these verses.
Thank you for reminding us:
We cannot be thankful and fearful at the same time.
We cannot be thankful and angry at the same time.
We cannot be thankful and bitter at the same time.
So, as we enter into thankfulness in our circumstances,
we praise Your name for this truth.
Thank you for loving us and being with us today.
In your name I pray,
Please leave your name and last initial in the comments below.
We are excited about tomorrow. And all the tomorrows that are in the future.
Robyn and Biff.
