This is not meant to be a beating, but rather a tool to give you some help in reading and understanding God’s word. If you miss a day, and can “catch up: by doubling up, then sweet. If you can’t read on certain days, adjust the schedule to fit your life. I think you will find the schedule pretty easy to maintain if you keep just a bit of discipline.
With that said…………….
This week’s reading:
Monday: Exodus 32 – 34 Tuesday: Exodus 35 – 37 Wednesday: Exodus 38 – 40 Thursday: Leviticus 1 – 3 Friday: Leviticus 4 – 6 Saturday: Leviticus 7 – 9 Sunday: Leviticus 10 – 12 Monday: Leviticus 13 – 15
Monday: Exodus 11 – 13
Exodus 11 outlines the final plague that will be brought upon the Egyptians. Exodus 12 is the description of the Passover lamb and meal that will “protect” the Israelites from the plague. This remembrance becomes the New Year and an annual festival of celebration in Israel. Finally the Egyptians drive out the Israelites. Exodus 13 reminds the Israelites of their devotion to God and the need for deliverance as God directly leads the people.
Tuesday: Exodus 14 – 16
Exodus 14 begins with Pharaoh plotting to retake the Israelites and the Israelites trapped by the sea. God divides the Sea and Israel crosses on dry ground, and God drowns the Egyptian army in the Sea as they attempt to cross. Exodus 15 is a song of remembrance and celebration of the work of God in the Exodus. God also provides water for His people. In Exodus 16 God provides manna for the people to eat, and also provides quail; while giving the people a Sabbath rest as well.
Wednesday: Exodus 17 – 19
Exodus 17 continues the trend of God’s provision and deliverance as He gives the Israelites water and victory in battle. Exodus 18 proves that individuals do not have a monopoly on good ideas as Moses receives wise counsel from his father-in-law. Chapter 19 has Israel arriving at Mt. Sinai and God appearing to the camp in an awe-inspiring way.
Thursday: Exodus 20 – 22
Exodus 20 gives the 10 commandments as the people do not want to hear from God, but send Moses to speak with God in their place. Exodus 21 gives laws concerning the people. Exodus 22 gives laws concerning property and various other laws.
Friday: Exodus 23 – 25
Exodus 23 outlines the coming conquest of the land as well as the national festivals of Israel. Chapter 24 sees the people affirm their covenant with God. Chapter 25 begins the outlining of the Tabernacle and the building of the Ark of the covenant.
Saturday: Exodus 26 – 28
These chapters continue the description of how the Tabernacle will be built and begin explaining the vestments (clothing) of the priests who will minister before God on behalf of the people. (Note: this was an important thing for Israel. While the details are boring to us, this is the first time since Adam & Eve were removed from the Garden that God is dwelling with man directly. These guidelines being preserved in Scripture show the importance of communion with God.)
Sunday: Exodus 29 – 31
Chapters 29 & 30 continue detailing the work of the priests and how they will make sacrifices to God. Exodus 31 reaffirms the Sabbath before sending Moses down the mountain with the tablets containing the Law.
