Hab 3: Even when life is unproductive, can you still rejoice in the Lord? (vs 7-18) When the Lord is the strength of our life, He can give us a sure-footed confidence to go to new spiritual heights (v. 19). What is an area of your life that you need to be more sure-footed?

—Steve Roth (Good Shepherd, Laurelton)

Tuesday, March 26, 2019: Jeremiah 51-52

Jer 52 - Jeremiah's prophecy ends with the Fall of Jerusalem and God's people being taken into captivity.(v.15). What a sad period of time! BUT JOY COMES IN THE MORNING.

Monday, April 1, 2019: Ezekiel 5-6

Ezekiel 6 - Four times in this chapter (v. 7,10,13,14) we see where God longs for others to know that He is the Lord. Do you know that He is Lord? List 3 reasons.

—Steve Roth (Good Shepherd, Laurelton)

Ezekiel 7 - The people trusted in their money, their idols and their leaders. None of the things they put their trust in would be able to save them.

—Steve Roth (Good Shepherd, Laurelton)

Ezekiel 10 - The glory of God departed from the temple. How sad! Without His glory and presence the temple became just another building. How do we keep the glory of God in the Church?

—Steve Roth (Good Shepherd, Laurelton)


Thursday, April 4, 2019: Ezekiel 11-12

Ezekiel 11 - Look at what God promises in v.19. Ask yourself the following: What is an "undivided" heart? What is the difference between someone who has a "heart of flesh" vs. someone who has a "heart of stone?"

—Steve Roth (Good Shepherd, Laurelton)


Friday, April 5, 2019: Ezekiel 13-14

Ezekiel 14 - If God's judgment falls on a nation, not even Noah, Daniel and Job could save it (v.13-14).

Why do you think God chose to mention these three heroes of Israel's history? What did each one do to become famous?

Monday, April 8, 2019: Ezekiel 17-18

—Steve Roth (Good Shepherd, Laurelton)


Tuesday, April 9, 2019: Ezekiel 19-20

Ezekiel 20 - Four times in this chapter (v.9,14,22,44) we read the words "for the sake of my name." Why do you think God is so concerned for His name or reputation? How is His name affected when His people were disobedient and rebellious?

Wednesday, April 10, 2019: Ezekiel 21-22

Ezekiel 22 - God was looking for a man to stand in the gap on behalf of others, but couldn't find one (v. 30). God needs "gap people" with the courage to stand up for what is right - even if it means standing alone. Are you such a person?

—Steve Roth (Good Shepherd, Laurelton)


Thursday, April 11, 2019: Ezekiel 23-24

Ezekiel 24 - The death of Ezekiel's wife would end up becoming a sermon (v. 34). Some sermons are preached with a heavy heart! What was God telling the people through this analogy?

Friday, April 12, 2019: Ezekiel 25-26

—Steve Roth (Good Shepherd, Laurelton)


Saturday, April 13, 2019: Ezekiel 27-28

Ezekiel 28 - As Ezekiel was speaking against the king of Tyre in this chapter, he also may have been condemning Satan in v. 11-19. How would some of these verses give an accurate description of Satan?
