Bible Reading Plan (Day 19)

DAY NINETEEN — Genesis 20, Matthew 19

Gen 20

The sister thing… again!

God spares Abimelech because of his ignorance.

Mt 19

Where do these Pharisees come from!?

Jesus gives one condition for divorce, sexual immorality. Paul, under guidance of the Holy Spirit, adds abandonment by an unbelieving spouse. (1 Cor 7:15)

Marriage and singleness are neither better than the other. But if God has one to be married, so be it. If God wants one to be single, so be it. He has purposes for both.

Again, Jesus shows his love for children and their need to be exposed to Kingdom principles.

Jesus confronts this seeker with the perfect law of the good God. The seeker cannot handle the law. He leaves with his sinfulness shamefully exposed. Jesus lets him go.

!!CONTEXT WARNING!! Verse 26 is about SALVATION not getting a new Porche.

Or reward is not in this world or of this world. It is far better than anything this world has to offer.

Questions to Ponder:

* Abraham pulled a slick one, explain how God’s response to it protected His glory.

* What of Jesus form of witnessing differs from the modern method?
