Here's some of what I've been reading in Acts:
  • 7:26-38 I love Philip's passion for obeying God's direction in his life. I think most of the times we miss God's purpose for us it is because we didn't respond quickly to what God was calling us to do.
  • 7:26-38 I also love the Ethiopian's passion for obeying God. I love that when he heard he should be baptized he pointed out that there was water right there, and said, "Why shouldn't I be baptized."
  • 9:4-5 Notice that Saul was persecuting the church, but when Jesus speaks to Saul, he says, "Saul, why do you persecute ME?" I'm reminded that whatever I do to the church, I am doing to Jesus.
  • 9:15-16 Saul becomes God's chosen instrument to carry his name to others. God seems to regularly be in the business of choosing to use people with damaged reputations and pasts share his message.
  • 9:27 Way to go Barnabas! We all need someone to stand up for us when our past sins seem to get in the way of us being used by God.
  • 10:15 "Don't call anything impure that God has made clean." One of my favorite verses in the Bible.
  • 10:28 "God has shown me that I should not call any man impure or unclean." The application of one of my favorite verses.
  • 10:34-35 "I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism, but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right." Fear/follow God and do what is right...pretty basic stuff...why do people make faith so hard?
