Evil Days

Today’s Reading: 2 Timothy First of all, BIG, GIGANTIC, 100TH HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISH to UNCLE CARL @ ESCF! As I read these letters Paul has written, I realize how lucky for people to receive these letters for his encouragement….  “as night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers”

Obedient To The Authorities

Today’s Reading: Titus “Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.” I must say that this is a big order

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

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

Thankful In All Things

Today’s Reading: 1 Thessalonians “Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will f or you in Christ Jesus” – 1 Thessalonians 5:21 I am so sick today that I can hardly hold my head up – with the power of caffeine and cold

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

Following God’s Purposes

Today’s Reading: The Daily Bible: Pages 1488-1493 Acts 3:1-6:7 “For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But, if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fight against God.” (Act 5:39) Does this verse

Setting A Good Example

Today’s Reading: Matthew 26:22-25, 30:35; Luke 22:14-21, 23-38; John 13-14 Do you feel any better reading New Testament, in comparison to Old Testament? I have difficulties in different sense. For Old Testament, I was having difficulties in understanding actual words, especially prophets (you recall, burning towers, four-faced animals). For New
