Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)

Australia Ministry Trip (Sept 26-November 10, 2017)
From September 26 to November 10, 2017, my husband, daughter and I will be on a ministry trip in Australia and New Zealand. The places we will be visiting are shown on the map above - along with the dates in which we'll be in these places (and what we'll be doing while there). Please keep this ministry trip and all of us in your prayers! Blogs will appear daily throughout this time, as I have written them and scheduled them in advance. I welcome your comments - and enjoy them! Just know I will not have Internet access for much of this time. So, I will look forward to reading your responses upon my return. Thank you for your understanding! And please keep reading to complete the "Reading the Bible in a Year" challenge and blessing! I am very grateful to Claire for her faithful blog comments (please everyone - join her in sharing each day as a discussion blesses everyone so much more!) And I am thankful that Claire has graciously agreed to add a bit more into her daily comments during my time of absence. Please direct special comments or questions which require immediate responses to her (on this blog). Blessings as you continue your journey through God's Word this year!

Daily Bible Reading - May 24, 2017

Today's Reading:

Acts 28:17-31

1 Samuel 6-7

Psalm 53

Listen to the Bible







Thoughts and Commentary on Today's Reading:

In today's society, one of the biggest challenges Christians face is helping others believe in the reality of God's existence. Like it says in Psalm 53:1

The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
 Actually, as  Scripture tells us, the way sinners ignore or discount the reality of God is nothing new. The whole world foolishly believed God wasn't real in time of the Flood. But God would have us turn from our foolishness, while there is yet time. Sodom and Gomorrah are left as examples of the end of such foolishness. 

Have you ever wondered what Sodom and Gomorrah were like? Consider the following archaeological video and revisit this story as you visually stroll down the main streets, now preserved as a mute testimony in ash.
