For scripture reading, every Monday, we are going to be posting the scriptures that are behind the scenes of what we heard on Sunday. This will help us get a healthy balance of the Word of God and get an idea where Jesus gets many of His ideas, and other writers, too! While not exhaustive, this list of scripture is designed to enrich your devotional time and to help you better connect with the message throughout the week. Many of the scripture is behind the scenes in the text, or applies to the message.
The below verses are best spread out over the course of the week.
