M'Cheyne Reading Reflections - Jan 5

By heath - Posted on 06 January 2010

We are reading the second family reading with the kids, and it was a late, and fun, night tonight so we put them to bed without reading. I'll try to catch up on Matt 5 tomorrow. Meanwhile...

Gen 5

With these people's lives being so long, imagine how much they learned. Just think how quickly knowledge and wisdom could grow in a society. There would have been many generations alive at the same time. It is interesting that Methuselah died the same year as the flood.

It is interesting that Lamech prophesies that Noah will be a deliverer. Indeed he was, and it was in the cov with Noah that God promises the seasonal consistency that becomes part of a sustained agricultural system. Noah is a type of the seed who is to come. His faithful father is still looking for the seed who would bring deliverance.

Ezra 5

The boldness of Zerubbabel is admirable. The did what God was calling them to do, and gave a truthful answer when asked.

Acts 5

It is interesting that Peter says the money of the sale was theirs. Their fault was a proud heart that wanted to use the service of God for their own gain. I am thankful that I have not been struck dead. I must admit there are times when I have less than pure motives for teaching or leading. I am a mixed bag. Thank you for your Grace, Lord.

It is always funny to read Gamaliel's words. Little did he know how truthful his words would be.

When do we rejoice to be considered worthy to suffer dishonor for the name. We are usually incredulous.
