Epic Voyage

Today’s Reading: Acts 27:1-28:31 What a trip! I’ve had a few interesting experiences while traveling, but nothing like Paul and his companions on their voyage to Rome. When Paul washes up on shore he had been through quite an ordeal (and just because he had God’s confirmation that he would

Legal Arguments

Today’s Reading: Acts 24-26 I am sure that I am one of very few that enjoy today’s reading so thoroughly because it is so fascinating in Paul’s legal arguments, including jurisdictional challenges. Paul did a beautiful way of appealing with facts and law. Tertullus had nothing but accusations without proof

Legal Wrangling

Today’s Reading: Acts 21:17-23:35 I find this reading quite fascinating due to my occupational hazard (in law). How Paul outsmarted one party after another, by using their own rules! It also saddens me to read this passage because this reminds me so much more what Christ had gone through as

Full-Power Evangelism

Today’s Reading: Acts 20:3b-21:16 These verses are filled with movement as we are being allowed to peer a bit into a “ships log” or a “day-timer” of these early disciples. The time frames given also help to make these passages more real and believable. Most significant, I think, is the

All-Sufficient Grace

Today’s Reading: 2 Corinthians 1-13; Acts 20:2-3 “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Need I say more? As I am taking one more step into the path the Lord has led me and my people here at work, I can’t help but

Resurrection

Today’s Reading: 1 Corinthians 15-16; Acts 19:23-41; 20:1 Greetings brothers and sisters! Can you believe that we have started the month of December? The new year is coming upon us quickly. The very first thing that was addressed in today’s reading was the resurrection. In Corinth, some teachers had gone

Calling

Today’s Reading: 2 Thessalonians; Acts 18:12-19:22 Today, I “pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of His calling, and that by His power He may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith… so that the name of our Lord Jesus may

Earthquake Jailbreak

Today’s Reading: Acts 15:36-18:11 Paul was not a foreigner to a prison. He was in and out of prison cells all his life. Can you imagine how he must have felt when the prison door is open due to an earthquake? Have you encountered an earthquake? I have. It is

The Word Spreads With Power

Today’s Reading: Acts 13:1–15:35 Interesting that the church recognizes that Barnabas and Paul are called to a work for the Lord, and they show fellowship with them (laying on of hands), but the Lord Himself is the One Who directly guides them in their journey of evangelization (their work for

Keeping Up With Change

Today’s Reading: Acts 9:32–12:25 I was thinking quietly about Psalm 23:2-3 this morning – green pastures and quiet waters – and thanking Him for His promise even although often as here, there are still storm clouds on the horizon! How beautiful that Peter goes about, quietly spreading blessing and the
