Psalms 58, 61


1 Corinthians: Ancient Israel’s 40-year journey between Egypt and Canaan is a sobering illustration of the misuse of freedom and the dangers of over-confidence. The Israelites misused their new-found freedom and fell into idolatry, immorality, and rebelliousness, thus disqualifying themselves from receiving the LORD’s blessing. They were not “all set” (as we say) and neither are we. We are to be vigilant for the LORD’s return. “What I say to you, I say to everyone: watch!” (Mark 13:37)

Gospel: Matthew 16:13-20

New Testament: 1 Corinthians 10:1-13

Old Testament: Genesis 2:1-17
