        Daily Word Scripture                                                                        The Rock Fails His Master

Matthew 26:69–75

John Calvin says Peter’s rash vow to remain with the Lord (Matt. 26:33) and subsequent failure encourage us not to rely on our own weakness, but to earnestly rely on the Spirit. It is easy to say that we will never deny the Lord. But our flesh is weak, and we should not think ourselves strong apart from the strength He alone can give us. We have all denied Him in some way; let us therefore lean on His Spirit that we may never do so again.

God’s Faithful Word of Praise and Thanksgiving


Psalm 100: This psalm is a hymn of praise that acknowledges God as our Creator and us as God’s people. It affirms our reasons for thanking and praising God.


The LORD is good; his love is eternal and his faithfulness lasts forever.



1Sing to the Lord, all the world!

2Worship the Lord with joy;

come before him with happy songs!

3Acknowledge that the Lord is God.

He made us, and we belong to him;

we are his people, we are his flock.

4Enter the Temple gates with thanksgiving;

go into its courts with praise.

Give thanks to him and praise him.

5 The Lord is good;

his love is eternal

and his faithfulness lasts forever.


This psalm affirms that we belong to God and compares God’s people to a flock of sheep. What are your thoughts about this image? Verse 5 concludes the psalm with the reason for praising God. How will you thank and praise God today?


Lord, you indeed are good and your faithfulness lasts forever. Gather us all into your flock and renew and refresh us with your life-giving Word. I thank and praise you for your mercy, love, and care. Amen.

Matthew 4:12-25 (Good News Translation)

God’s Faithful Word of Prayer


Matthew 4:12-25: Jesus moves north to Capernaum and begins his public ministry in Galilee. He calls his first four disciples and travels throughout Galilee, teaching, preaching, and healing the sick.

Today's Scripture: Matthew 4:17

From that time Jesus began to preach his message: “Turn away from your sins, because the Kingdom of heaven is near!”

Today's Reading

Jesus Begins His Work in Galilee

(Mark 1.14,15; Luke 4.14,15)

12 When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison, he went away to Galilee.13 He did not stay in Nazareth, but went to live in Capernaum, a town by Lake Galilee, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali.14This was done to make come true what the prophet Isaiah had said,

15 “Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,

on the road to the sea, on the other side of the Jordan,

Galilee, land of the Gentiles!

16The people who live in darkness

will see a great light.

On those who live in the dark land of death

the light will shine.”

17 From that time Jesus began to preach his message: “Turn away from your sins, because the Kingdom of heaven is near!”

Jesus Calls Four Fishermen

(Mark 1.16-20; Luke 5.1-11)

18As Jesus walked along the shore of Lake Galilee, he saw two brothers who were fishermen, Simon (called Peter) and his brother Andrew, catching fish in the lake with a net.19Jesus said to them, “Come with me, and I will teach you to catch people.”20At once they left their nets and went with him.

21He went on and saw two other brothers, James and John, the sons of Zebedee. They were in their boat with their father Zebedee, getting their nets ready. Jesus called them,22and at once they left the boat and their father, and went with him.

Jesus Teaches, Preaches, and Heals

(Luke 6.17-19)

23 Jesus went all over Galilee, teaching in the synagogues, preaching the Good News about the Kingdom, and healing people who had all kinds of disease and sickness.24The news about him spread through the whole country of Syria, so that people brought to him all those who were sick, suffering from all kinds of diseases and disorders: people with demons, and epileptics, and paralyzed people—and Jesus healed them all.25Large crowds followed him from Galilee and the Ten Towns, from Jerusalem, Judea, and the land on the other side of the Jordan.


What does Jesus’ message (verse 17) mean to you? What invitation did Jesus extend to Simon Peter and Andrew (verse 19)? In what ways does your community of faith invite and welcome people?


Lord Jesus, you have called me to follow you. Teach me to share the Good News and extend your Kingdom so that all may know of your love and salvation. Amen.

God’s Faithful Word of Praise and Thanksgiving


Psalm 81: This celebratory psalm recounts God’s deliverance of the Israelites from bondage in Egypt and concludes with an affirmation of God’s love and care for those who obey him.


Shout for joy to God our defender; sing praise to the God of Jacob!



1Shout for joy to God our defender;

sing praise to the God of Jacob!

2Start the music and beat the tambourines;

play pleasant music on the harps and the lyres.

3 Blow the trumpet for the festival,

when the moon is new and when the moon is full.

4This is the law in Israel,

an order from the God of Jacob.

5He gave it to the people of Israel

when he attacked the land of Egypt.

I hear an unknown voice saying,

6“I took the burdens off your backs;

I let you put down your loads of bricks.

7 When you were in trouble, you called to me, and I saved you.

From my hiding place in the storm, I answered you.

I put you to the test at the springs of Meribah.

8Listen, my people, to my warning;

Israel, how I wish you would listen to me!

9 You must never worship another god.

10I am the Lord your God,

who brought you out of Egypt.

Open your mouth, and I will feed you.

11“But my people would not listen to me;

Israel would not obey me.

12So I let them go their stubborn ways

and do whatever they wanted.

13How I wish my people would listen to me;

how I wish they would obey me!

14I would quickly defeat their enemies

and conquer all their foes.

15Those who hate me would bow in fear before me;

their punishment would last forever.

16But I would feed you with the finest wheat

and satisfy you with wild honey.”


This psalm, most likely written for a festival, would have been accompanied by music. What instruments are mentioned? What festivals are celebrated or commemorated in your community of faith? The psalm recalls how God delivered the Israelites from slavery (verses 6-10). What did God do? Verse 10 begins with the first words from Exodus 20:2, and verse 9 echoes Exodus 20:3. Why are these words important? What is promised to those who obey God?


I sing for joy, Lord God, because you are my defender and deliverer. I feast today on your Word and worship you. I praise your holy name. Amen.

Psalm 84: A psalm celebrating the joy of worship.
