Today is a Rest Day. There is no new Bible reading to do. Today, the goal is simple: rest in the presence of God. Maybe you need to use today to get caught up on the reading plan if you’re behind, maybe you want to journal what you’re learning so you don’t forget what God is teaching you, or maybe you want to spend time in concentrated prayer–do that. Above all, just spend time in God’s presence.
One of the most interesting passages in all of the Old Testament is the story of the golden calf in Exodus 32, which Moses referred to in Deuteronomy 9. This passage is all too relatable to us today, as we find ourselves creating our own gods all around us (even though deep down we know they’ll never satisfy us).
To further understand that story (and how to apply it), check out this article from The Gospel Coalition called “Reexamining Idolatry: The Golden Calf and False Worship”.
Worship With Us
Join us in person or online at 9a or 11a at harriscreek.org/live. We will not be having the 7p service today!
We’d love to worship with you! We also desire to connect everyone with a local church body where they can thrive in community and use their gifts to serve. If you’re following our Bible Reading Plan from outside of Waco and are eager to get connected with a great local church, email us at email@example.com.
