NewLSFB176: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Psalms 93-96

I don’t know about you, but I can’t help but get excited when I read chapters like these. Psalm 93 declares that God is king, then proceeds to illustrate in great, majestic language how this is true. Psalm 94 opens by referring to Him as the God of vengeance. This is an interesting word. I…

NewLSFB175: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Acts 24 and 25

Today we’ll read Acts 24 and 25 from the New Living Translation. When we last left Paul, he had been sent to Caesarea to stand trial before Governor Felix. Upon Paul arrival there, Felix held Paul in Herod’s prison until his accusers could arrive.

NewLSFB174: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Joshua 7

The first word of today’s chapter is “But”. Whenever we see that, we need to remember what the previous statement was, because “but” is a word that ties two thoughts together. If I say to you, “But I’m going to have a snack,” you don’t know the full meaning of that statement. I might have…

NewLSFB173: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Psalms 90, 91, 92

Psalm 90 was written by Moses. Though it’s only 17 verses, it sums up his entire experience with God. Psalm 91 is a great one to read when you’re feeling afraid. Verse 2 says, in part, “He alone is my refuge, my place of safety.” Let’s face it, all of us feel afraid from time…

NewLSFB172: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Acts 23

Much of this chapter is self explanatory, though there are fine points to be learned by deeper study than we typically do here. But one thing I would like to bring out is at the very beginning of the chapter. After Ananias the high priest, in a fit of rage orders that Paul be struck…

NewLSFB171: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Joshua 5 and 6

When God tells you to do something, don’t question Him. Even if you think doing it will make you look silly. How crazy must the people in Jericho thought the Israelites were when they looked outside the walls on the first day, and saw the parade pass by. “What do those desert wanderers think they’re…

NewLSFB170: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Psalms 87, 88, 89

In Psalm 87 we read how God loves Zion, used in this case to mean Jerusalem. There is an obvious tone of joy with this Psalm. But Psalm 88 is full of anguish. The writer is pouring out his heart to God. In the opening, he confesses that God is his savior, and immediately begins…

NewLSFB169: The New Lifespring! Family Audio Bible – Acts 22

One of the aspects of God and Christianity that some non believers have a really hard time reconciling is forgiveness, especially that of particularly heinous crimes. And on one level, I understand the difficulty. Today, we read of Paul’s confession to the Lord that he had been responsible for the arrest of believers, and even…
