Today is our 1,000th post. We have posted every day for almost three years and it has been a blessing to know there are people who follow along and get something out of reading God’s word together. A special thanks goes out to Brian Manning who helped start this endeavor and to Sarah Muncell who helped push through a big part of these posts. Here’s to the next 1,000!

For today’s reading, we see the beginning of Jesus’ ministry in His hometown of Nazareth. But even Jesus was not accepted in His hometown. Luke 4:24 says, “I tell you the truth,” he continued, “no prophet is accepted in his hometown.” Don’t be surprised when the people who are closest to you do not understand how God is changing and working in your life. Just be faithful to God’s call and obedient to His commands and He will be glorified.
