I've read John 13 - 21, and Acts 1-3 now... and I need to post about them! Also, I just realized that when I'm done reading through the Bible, I will have posted here over 1100 times!

John 12:1-50 (link) I love how Jesus is always pointing to God... and isn't it interesting how the Pharisees are always worried about themselves? "And I know his instructions lead to eternal life; so I say whatever the Father tells me to say!"
vs.
"Then the leading priests decided to kill Lazarus, too, for it was because of him that many of the people had deserted them and believed in Jesus."

Jesus, thank You for Your free gift of eternal life, and Your grace You've given me. <333

[Current Music |Dashboard Confessional - So Beautiful]

John 11:1-57 (link) The famous story of Lazarus's death and resurrection. I think this was the first time I read this story for myself. It was interesting to see how Martha blamed Jesus for his death instead of trusting in Him that He knew best. "Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died." She kept saying. And this part touched my heart, "When Jesus saw her weeping... he was deeply moved in spirit and troubled." Wow... Jesus mourns with us... EVEN THOUGH HE KNEW that He was going to bring Lazarus back.

[Current Music |The Bled - Nothing We Say Leaves This Room]

John 10:1-42 (link) Jesus begins with an illustration about the flock of believers. "I am the good shepherd," He says about himself, "I know my sheep and my sheep know me." Later he goes on to say "My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me."

This makes me think of my friend Jason Fredrigil's new baby Kaila. Whenever Jason speaks, her eyes are always searching the room to find his voice because it soothes her.

John 9:1-41 (link) Throughout this whole chapter I kept saying, "Oh snap!" Jesus heals a man, who was blind from birth! OH SNAP! Then this man goes before the Jewish leaders/Pharisees, telling them Jesus did it, but they didn't believe him. The guy straight out told them, "If this man were not from God, he could do nothing." OH SNAP! THEN when Jesus heard that they threw the man out of the synagogue, he told them "If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains." and-ah-OH-SNAP-age! HAHA

Psalm 13 (link) How long do I have to wait on the Lord? How do I have the audacity to say to Him, 'Answer me!' Especially when all I deserve is death... But... I trust in Your unfailing love.

John 8:1-59 (link) The one thing that stood out to me the most in this chapter (besides the constant unbelief from the people around Jesus) was in verse 31&32. "Jesus said to the people who believed in him, 'You are truly my disciples if you keep obeying my teachings. And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.'" Obey my teachings and you will know the truth that frees.

"Oh, please God help me..."

Psalm 4 (link) GOD I cry out! Give me relief from my distress. Give me relief from my sadness. Give me relief from my depression. Do not turn your face from me. Take my life before you look not upon me with a smile. I lay my life in your hands. I don't want my will. Break me. BREAK ME.

.break me.

I read 2 Peter 2 today... but I'm having trouble writing a sentence/sentences about the chapters I read that aren't the subtitles that have already been placed at the top of the chapter. It's like, I read through a chapter, and the whole time, there's this idea floating around in my head, and when I go to summarize, it's the subtitle :-/ I'll post my words soon... but if you have any suggestions on how to summarize, I'm totally open! Thanks.

[Current Music |Zao - If These Scars Could Speak]

2 Peter 1:1-21 (link) Peter writes to "all of you who share the same precious faith we have," (verse 1b, NLT) (that's all of us) regarding knowing Jesus better, and regarding his divine power that "gives us everything we need for living a godly life." (verse 3, NLT) He tells us that by applying God's promises to our lives our faith will produce a life of moral excellence, which leads to many more virtues (verses 5b-8). He warns us about those who fail to develop the virtues mentioned in those verses, how they are sight-impaired (blind or short-sighted). Next, Peter admonishes us to "work hard to prove [we're really called and chosen by God]." (verse 10a, paraphrased)

He closes this chapter with this instruction: "Pay close attention to what [the prophets] wrote, for their words are like a light shining in a dark place." (verse 19ish, NLT)

Is anyone else having trouble writing only one sentence per chapter?
