April 23 – 1 Chronicles 1 & 2

Below are my thoughts from the daily Bible reading of the West Side Church of Christ. Today’s reading comes from 1 Chronicles 1 & 2. Before reading I invite you to pray and asked God to speak to you as you read his word. Also above in the tabs is a link to the Bible reading plan.

Let me just say congratulations and mad props to you if you completed today’s reading. Readings like today’s can be challenging. For the past couple of weeks I have not actually been “reading.” For the last couple of weeks I have been completing my reading while in the shower and while cooking my breakfast. As I have shared before I use the YouVersion Bible app to do my reading from and this app allows you to use the listener’s version. So instead of actually reading I have listened to it. And let me tell you, while I was listening this morning I was thinking about all you who would be reading.

The reason I think all that is because all we had today were a list of names. And I will be honest it is hard to keep all that straight. But here is the cool thing, the author of Chronicles is beginning his book by introducing all the characters of the story who have brought us to where we are and some of the characters who will soon enter our story. While we may see a bunch of names, those names are the people who have made up the story of the Bible. Did you recognize the names you read as we have went through the story?

At West Side we believe highly in prayer. We are asking people to join with us in praying daily for West Side. If you would like to join us please click here and subscribe to receive daily emails containing a short prayer request for West Side. We appreciate your partnership.
