Daily Bible Reading “Jesus Goes to Gethsemane to Pray” (Matthew 26:31-45)

JesusPrayingJesus Goes to Gethsemane to Pray

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Matthew 26:31-45. In this Scripture, Jesus tells the disciples they’ll all be offended. What does He mean by saying they’ll be “offended”? The word “offended” means to cause one to distrust and desert one who he ought to trust and obey. Then, Jesus quotes them Zechariah 13:7:  “I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.”

Jesus instructs them that when He has risen again, He’ll meet them in Galilee. Peter says to Jesus, “Even though all men will be offended by Him, he won’t be offended by Jesus.” Jesus warns Peter that he would deny Him three times that very night before morning comes. Peter and all the disciples still claim they may die with Jesus, but they won’t deny Him.

When Jesus and the disciples arrive at Gethsemane, Jesus tells the disciples to sit and wait for Him, while He goes to pray. He took Peter, and James and John, the two sons of Zebedee. Jesus told them He was very sorrowful, even unto death and asked them to stay with Him and keep watch.

Then Jesus went a little bit farther and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.” Can you imagine the agony Jesus must have felt, knowing what was about to happen to Him?

Jesus, came back to the disciples, and found them sleeping. He rebuked them saying, “Couldn’t you watch with me for one hour?” Jesus reminds them to watch and pray, so they wouldn’t be tempted, because the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. This is good advice for us today, because it is our flesh we still have to deal with as long as we live.

Jesus went away and prayed the same prayer two more times, and both times He returned and found the disciples sleeping. Finally, He tells them, “Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.”


Daily Bible Scripture:

Matthew 26:31-45

31 Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad.
32 But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee.
33 Peter answered and said unto him, Though all men shall be offended because of thee, yet will I never be offended.
34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.
35 Peter said unto him, Though I should die with thee, yet will I not deny thee. Likewise also said all the disciples.
36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.
38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.
39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

Things to Think About:

  • Why did Jesus say they would be offended?
  • What did Jesus tell Peter when he said he wouldn’t be offended?
  • Can you imagine the distress Jesus must have been under knowing what was about to take place?
  • Why were the disciples sleeping?
  • Have you put your faith and trust in God?


Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,
As we read this Scripture of Jesus praying in Gethsemane, we can see that this was not an easy thing for Jesus to do, but He submitted to Your will. Help us to do as Jesus told the disciples to do, watch and pray. You know we need Your help because the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Just as Jesus put all His faith and trust in You, help us to have faith that You will work everything out. In Jesus’ name, we pray. We love You, LORD. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “The Last Supper” (Matthew 26:1-30)

Last_Supper Leonardo_da_VinciThe Last Supper

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Matthew 26:1-30. In this Scripture, Jesus tells His disciples the Passover is coming and He’ll be betrayed and crucified. The chief priests, scribes, and elders gathered at the palace of the high priest, Caiaphas and plotted how they were going to kill Jesus.

Jesus was in Bethany, at Simon the Leper’s house, and there was a woman there with an alabaster box which had very expensive ointment in it. She poured the ointment on Jesus’ head while He was eating. This was her form of worshiping Jesus and preparing Him for His burial. What sacrifices do you make to worship Jesus?

The disciples were upset, saying this expensive ointment could have been sold and given to the poor. Then they asked, why the waste? Jesus told them they’ll always have the poor, but He won’t always be with them.

Judas Iscariot went to the chief priests and asked them what they would give him if he turned Jesus over to them. They gave him thirty pieces of silver, and from that day forward he looked for the opportunity to turn Jesus over to them.

The disciples told Jesus that the Passover was coming and asked Him where He wanted them to prepare it for Him. Jesus told them to go to a certain man’s house and tell them He wanted to have the Passover with His disciples at that house. The disciples did as Jesus told them and prepared for the Passover feast.

While Jesus and the disciples were having the Passover feast, Jesus told them one of them would betray Him. They each asked if it was him, then, Jesus told them it is the one who dipped his hand in the bowl with Him. Judas, acting like he didn’t know what Jesus was talking about, said, “Master, Is it I?” Jesus answered him, saying, “Thou hast said.”

Jesus continued with what is known as The Last Supper, and gave them the bread to represent His body, and the drink to represent His blood, which He would shed on the cross. The Bible says they sang a hymn, then left and went to the Mount of Olives. We still have The Lord’s Supper in many of our churches today to commemorate the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross.

Daily Bible Reading:

Matthew 26:1-30

1 And it came to pass, when Jesus had finished all these sayings, he said unto his disciples,
2 Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.
3 Then assembled together the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders of the people, unto the palace of the high priest, who was called Caiaphas,
4 And consulted that they might take Jesus by subtilty, and kill him.
5 But they said, Not on the feast day, lest there be an uproar among the people.
6 Now when Jesus was in Bethany, in the house of Simon the leper,
7 There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment, and poured it on his head, as he sat at meat.
8 But when his disciples saw it, they had indignation, saying, To what purpose is this waste?
9 For this ointment might have been sold for much, and given to the poor.
10 When Jesus understood it, he said unto them, Why trouble ye the woman? for she hath wrought a good work upon me.
11 For ye have the poor always with you; but me ye have not always.
12 For in that she hath poured this ointment on my body, she did it for my burial.
13 Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.
14 Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
15 And said unto them, What will ye give me, and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
16 And from that time he sought opportunity to betray him.
17 Now the first day of the feast of unleavened bread the disciples came to Jesus, saying unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare for thee to eat the passover?
18 And he said, Go into the city to such a man, and say unto him, The Master saith, My time is at hand; I will keep the passover at thy house with my disciples.
19 And the disciples did as Jesus had appointed them; and they made ready the passover.
20 Now when the even was come, he sat down with the twelve.
21 And as they did eat, he said, Verily I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.
22 And they were exceeding sorrowful, and began every one of them to say unto him, Lord, is it I?
23 And he answered and said, He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.
24 The Son of man goeth as it is written of him: but woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born.
25 Then Judas, which betrayed him, answered and said, Master, is it I? He said unto him, Thou hast said.
26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
29 But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.
30 And when they had sung an hymn, they went out into the mount of Olives.

Things to think about:
• Why did the scribes and priests want to kill Jesus?
• Why did the woman with the alabaster box pour the ointment on Jesus’ head?
• Why did Judas betray Jesus?
• What did he take in exchange for his betrayal?
• What do the bread and the wine of the Lord’s Supper represent?

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,
Help us as we read this Scripture today, to do as the woman with the alabaster box, and worship Jesus in a humble way. Thank You for Your Son, Jesus, who You sent into this world to die on the cross for us so we might have forgiveness of our sins, and inherit eternal life. Help us not to betray Jesus, as Judas Iscariot did. In Jesus’ name, we pray. We love You, LORD. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “Even a Child is Known by Their Deeds” (Proverbs 20:11-19)

Proverbs 20 11Even a Child is Known by Their Deeds

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 20:11-19. As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that even a child is known by their deeds, whether their work is pure, and whether it is right. If the Bible says this about a child, how much more are we as adults known by our actions. We all will have to give an account for our actions.

The LORD has made both the hearing ear, and the seeing eye. Thank you God for ears that hear and eyes that see your beautiful creation.

Those who love sleep come to poverty; open your eyes, and you will be satisfied with bread.

The buyer declares, “It is bad,” but when they have gone their way, then they boast.

There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.

Take his garment as surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.

Bread of deceit is sweet to a person; but afterwards their mouth will be filled with gravel.

Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.

Those who go about as talebearers reveal secrets: therefore don’t meddle with those who flatter with their lips.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 20:11-19

11 Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work be pure, and whether it be right.
12 The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them.
13 Love not sleep, lest thou come to poverty; open thine eyes, and thou shalt be satisfied with bread.
14 It is naught, it is naught, saith the buyer: but when he is gone his way, then he boasteth.
15 There is gold, and a multitude of rubies: but the lips of knowledge are a precious jewel.
16 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger: and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.
17 Bread of deceit is sweet to a man; but afterwards his mouth shall be filled with gravel.
18 Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
19 He that goeth about as a talebearer revealeth secrets: therefore meddle not with him that flattereth with his lips.

 

Things to think about:

  • What does this Scripture say we are known by?
  •  Why should we seek counsel?
  •  What does this Scripture say about a talebearer?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that even a child is known by their deeds. Help us to be aware of this and keep watch over ourselves and the things that we do. Help us to follow Your ways and not the ways of the world. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “Wine is a Mocker” (Proverbs 20:1-10)

Proverbs 20 1Wine is a Mocker

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 20:1-10. As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that wine is a mocker, intoxicating drinks cause commotion: and those who are deceived by them are not wise. Why does the Scripture say this about wine and other intoxicating drinks?

Getting intoxicated by drinking too much wine or other alcoholic beverages can cause people to make bad decisions, which can lead to other problems.

Making a habit of drinking too much on a regular basis can lead to alcoholism, which can cause all kinds of trouble in a person’s life.

Let’s look at the other Scriptures from this passage:

The fear of a king is like a roaring lion: whoever provokes him to anger sins against his own soul.

It is an honor for a person to cease from controversy: but every fool will be meddling.

A lazy person who refuses to plow because of the cold; will be begging at the time of harvest, because they have no food to eat.

Counsel in the heart of a person is like deep water; but a person of understanding can draw it out. Many times the answers to our lives are hidden deep inside of us, but a good counselor can help draw the answers to our life situations out of us.

Most people will proclaim their own goodness: but who can find a faithful person?

The righteous person walks in integrity: their children are blessed after them.

A king who sits on the throne of judgment scatters away evil with his eyes.

Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin? We can’t cleanse our own heart. Our heart can only be made pure by the cleansing of the blood of Jesus.

In the Old Testament people would sacrifice animals for their sin. But, since Jesus died on the cross, He became our sacrifice. Only through accepting Him as our Savior can our hearts be truly cleansed from sin.

Divers weights, and divers measures, both are an abomination to the LORD.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 20:1-10

1 Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise.
2 The fear of a king is as the roaring of a lion: whoso provoketh him to anger sinneth against his own soul.
3 It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.
4 The sluggard will not plow by reason of the cold; therefore shall he beg in harvest, and have nothing.
5 Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water; but a man of understanding will draw it out.
6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?
7 The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him.
8 A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.
9 Who can say, I have made my heart clean, I am pure from my sin?
10 Divers weights, and divers measures, both of them are alike abomination to the LORD.

 

Things to think about:

  • What does this Scripture say about wine and other strong drinks?
  • What does this Scripture say will happen to a lazy person?
  • Has your heart been cleansed from sin by the blood of Jesus?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that wine is a mocker and intoxicating drinks cause commotion. Help us not to be deceived by it. Thank You for Your Son, Jesus, who is the ultimate sacrifice for our sins. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

Daily Bible Reading “The Fear of the LORD” (Proverbs 19:23-29)

 Proverbs 19 23The Fear of the LORD

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Proverbs 19:23-29. In this Scripture we are told that the fear of the LORD tends to life: and those who have it will be satisfied; they won’t be visited with evil. What does it mean to have the fear of the LORD?

I think it means to reverence Him, to respect Him, to honor Him. Like a child should respect and honor their parents we should show our respect to the LORD. We should honor Him as an authority in our lives.

A lazy person hides their hand in their bowl, and will not even bring it to their mouth again.

Strike a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that has understanding, and they will gain knowledge.

Those who waste their father, and chase away their mother, is a child who causes shame, and brings reproach.

Stop listening to the instruction that causes you to stray from the words of knowledge. We should not listen to any information that leads us away from the truth of the Word of God.

An ungodly witness scorns judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devours iniquity.

Judgments are prepared for mockers, and stripes for the back of fools.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

Proverbs 19:23-29

23 The fear of the LORD tendeth to life: and he that hath it shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
24 A slothful man hideth his hand in his bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
25 Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, and he will understand knowledge.
26 He that wasteth his father, and chaseth away his mother, is a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction that causeth to err from the words of knowledge.
28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.
29 Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.

 

Things to think about:

  • How does having the fear of the LORD affect our life?
  • What does a child do that is disobedient to their parents?
  • What does this Scripture say about a lazy person?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

As we read this Scripture in the book of Proverbs we are reminded that the fear of the LORD tends to life and those who have it will be satisfied. Help us to fear and reverence You as our heavenly Father. Lead, guide, and direct in our lives. Help us to be what You would have us to be. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
