The Book of Acts (January 8 – February 4, 2024)

Day Twenty-Eight | The Book of Acts

Yesterday we read about the beginning of Paul’s final journey to Rome and the challenges he, along with others, faced while at sea. Today we see what happens when his ship runs aground in Malta, and then sets sail for Rome. Once Paul gets to Rome, he is placed under house arrest and does what…

Day Twenty-Seven | The Book of Acts

When you read this passage, you probably wouldn’t label this as one of Paul’s “favorite day” in ministry. For years, he had been longing to go to Rome to establish a home base for the Church. In this chapter, we see the sovereignty of God on display. Luke gives us a detailed account of Paul’s…

Day Twenty-Six | The Book of Acts

Paul’s life serves as an example of bold and unwavering faith in the face of hardships and criticisms for the sake of the gospel. In Acts 26, he fearlessly proclaims the gospel, holding nothing back. What stands out the most to me is the simplicity with which Paul delivers his testimony, plainly sharing what his…

Day Twenty-Five | The Book of Acts

What a great example we see today of boldness in proclaiming Christ in the midst of adversity! In Acts 25, the apostle Paul finds himself standing before the Roman governor, Festus, and King Agrippa, facing false accusations and unjust trials. The main point of this passage revolves around Paul’s unwavering faith in God’s purpose despite…

Day Twenty-Four | The Book of Acts

Imagine 40 angry men are prepared to kill you. They’ve taken an oath to neither eat nor drink until you are dead because a group of religious people made false accusations against you.

Day Twenty-Three | The Book of Acts

The truth about Jesus always has and always will enrage God’s enemies and divide people, just as Jesus warned when he dispersed his disciples as “sheep in the midst of wolves” (Mattew 10:16 ESV). He predicted persecution and hatred, like Paul faced in Acts 23, because he did “not come to bring peace, but a…

Day Twenty-Two | The Book of Acts

Miracles, strengthened disciples, and enraged Jews followed Paul to Jerusalem. When the latter violently opposed him, God advanced Paul’s appointed assignment to witness Jesus to everyone (Acts 22:10, 15 ESV). We can expect God to be equally faithful to us when adversaries reject the gospel and the inerrant truth of God’s Word. It may be…

Day Twenty-One | The Book of Acts

It’s easy to get lost trying to keep track of where Paul is, who he’s with, and where he’s headed next. It reminds me of college students on a road trip who have a destination in mind (a famous baseball stadium, best hot dog stand, placing a foot on the border of Canada & USA,…

Day Twenty | The Book of Acts

In Acts 20, we gain several personal insights into the life of the Apostle Paul and his ministry, but there are two specific things that jump out in this text. First, we see Paul’s tender care for the churches he visited as he concludes this third missionary journey. We see his sadness as he bids…

Day Nineteen | The Book of Acts

Acts 19 begins at the beginning of Paul’s third missionary journey as he is traveling through Ephesus. Think about what happens here, these Christians put their hope in John’s baptism. Sometimes, we too put our hope in church, in the things we do, or even in other people like the Christians in Ephesus did. The…
