January 6 – Melchizedek and Perfection

Genesis 13:5-15:21
Matthew 5:27-48
Psalm 6:1-10
Proverbs 1:29-33

Genesis 14:18 — The next time we see Melchizedek is a thousand years later in Psalm 110. David is telling of a conversation between the LORD and David’s Lord. This reference seemed confusing for the next thousand years until it was explained in Hebrews 7:17.

Matthew 5:48 — After reading through today’s passage and ending up with verse 48 – do you feel imperfect? Join the club (Romans 3:23), but if you have time, do a word study on “be perfect.”

Psalm 6:9 — Looking for another Bible study topic? Try this one: research God hearing your prayers.

Proverbs 1:32 — Do you remember these two individuals? We met them a few days ago.

  1. Love. The study. However i am confused with how you write the Genesis reading. Such as.
    Genesis 13:5-15:21
    I read it as chapter 13 verse 5 to 15 and 21. But i don’t think its correct. Or
    Do you mean chapter 13 verse 5 and then chapter 15 verse 21? Usually others put commas inbetween?
    Thanks much

    1. Hi Patti,

      My apologies it’s from Genesis 13:5 thru Genesis 15:21. If you click the link where it says January 6 it will pull up the reading for the day.
