    Jeremiah 4-6, Psalm 118

    Jeremiah 4-6, Psalm 118

    The Lord’s love remains on Judah but he cannot allow her rampant evil and adulterous idol worship to continue. Time and again He has called them to repent, but they continue to love their wealth, their sin, and their idols more than the Lord their God. The Lord will send Assyria from the north to conquer Jerusalem and Judah, making it a desolate wasteland. He sends Jeremiah to ensure that everyone in Judah has heard, going throughout Israel with this message like a grape gatherer whose hand passes over the branches to make sure he has been thorough.

    Jeremiah 1-3, Psalms 116-117

    Jeremiah 1-3, Psalms 116-117

    Jeremiah was a young man serving as a priest when the Lord called him and set him aside to be God’s chosen instrument in prophesying against the nation of Judah. Judah had seen the fall of Israel after their centuries of wickedness and idolatry against the Lord, both figuratively and sometimes literally prostituting themselves with idols and cult prostitutes. They worshipped false gods on hilltops and under trees, as was the custom in the surrounding nations, rejecting the God who loved them, provided for them, and protected them. These idols were a broken cistern, promising life and refreshment only to come up empty.

    1 John 1-5, Psalms 114-115

    1 John 1-5, Psalms 114-115

    John, the apostle whom Jesus loved and the author of the fourth gospel writes today’s letter to the church with encouragement to flee from sin, to trust in Jesus, to love one another, and to assure them of the eternal life that Christ has secured for them. This letter doesn’t have a typical structure; unlike other epistles it doesn’t address a particular church or mention individual people. The nature of fellowship with one another and the relationships between mankind and their God are at the forefront of this letter, as John uses the marks of Christian love to strengthen true believers and convict false converts who hate those whom they call “brother.”

    Job 38-42, Isaiah 33

    Job 38-42, Isaiah 33

    Job has justified himself in his own sight, repeating again and again that God has been unjust, bemoaning his fate and complaining that a man should be able to take God to court. In today’s episode, God puts Job in his place by asking him a series of questions. This inquisition is designed to help Job see how finite, weak, and limited he is, while painting a vibrant picture of God’s power and authority. Job can’t even direct a wild animal to work for him, let alone oversee the entirety of creation. In the end, Job relents and his relationship with God is restored to one of fruitful abundance.

    Job 34-37, Isaiah 32

    Job 34-37, Isaiah 32

    As the young man named Elihu continues to present a case against Job and his friends, he confronts the audacious claim that a man gains nothing from friendship with God. Moreover, the God who created all things is accountable to no one; in other words, He doesn’t owe anything to anyone, therefore nobody can say that He is unfair or unjust. The God who made all things also sees all things, knows all things, and will rightly judge all things. Man, with his limitations, cannot know or understand these things and therefore cannot claim to be a better authority than a sovereign God.

    Job 29-33, Isaiah 31

    Job 29-33, Isaiah 31

    In today’s episode, Job starts his “I don’t get no respect” routine and tells his friends of the dishonor he now endures from fellow citizens and from the riff-raff that live in the desert around him. He remarks that he has been faithful to the Lord, caring for those in need, and keeping himself from the worship of false gods such as the worship of sun and moon. When Job concludes his words, a young man named Elihu, who has yet to speak, begins to voice his anger. He has respectfully waited until those older than him have had their say, but they have argued inadequately against Job and Job has spoken with a self-righteous posture.

Great tool for spending more time in scripture

I’ve so enjoyed Commuter Bible! The 5-days-a-week format keeps me from getting behind on weekends when schedules are off. John’s narration strikes a great balance between overly dramatic and emotionless reading. I’ve also enjoyed his introductions which help me be prepared to listen and understand the scripture for the day. The music is a wonderful bonus! Thanks for using your gifts and talents to help us spend more quality time in the Word!
