March Bible Reading Schedule: HOPE

Happy March, dear readers!

Winter is almost over here in the NorthEast, there is hope yet for warmer weather and sunnier skies.

I felt that HOPE was a very fitting theme for this month’s Bible reading as we’re preparing to leave the dim, cold winter behind and spring up with new growth and life…

The month begins in Song – heartfelt expressions of Hope from the book of Psalms. We read of the expectation of the Lord’s goodness and mercy and are encouraged to look towards His hand for the dispensation of blessings.  David “hoped continually” in the Lord, not once in a while, not once a week, not only when things were rough or well but Continually.

The passages in Jeremiah and Lamentations (written by the same man) are two of my favorite in the whole Bible. Jeremiah declares his hope in the Lord during times of desperation and abject despair and clings to the promise of sustaining life during times of draught and trial.

Entering the New Testament, Hope is given a Face and a Name – our Hope is founded in, secured by and tethered to One, Jesus Christ, our Savior. We hope in His life, His death, His resurrection and triumphant return. We have hope because of Him.

Enjoy, and may the Lord bless you through the reading of His word. May it dwell richly in us!
