Thursday of Sunday after Ascension – Acts 3:11-26

ShareActs 3:11-26 “The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach . . . .” In Luke’s Gospel he faithfully recorded all that Jesus began to do and teach, but here in the Acts of the Apostles he faithfully records what Jesus continued to do through His […]

Wednesday of Sunday after Ascension – Acts 3:1-10

ShareActs 3:1-10 Have you ever noticed that God seems to especially visit those who are spiritually prepared, especially those who have devoted themselves to a life of prayer?

Tuesday of Sunday after Ascension – Acts 2:37-46

ShareActs 2:37-46 “So continuing with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people.” This is perhaps the happiest picture of a church in the entire New Testament.  It images for me what […]

Saturday of Easter 5 – Acts 2:1-21

ShareActs 2:1-21 Who doesn’t want to be like the early church?!  I know I do.  Who wouldn’t want supernatural signs of the presence of God such as speaking in foreign tongues and having tongues of fire over one’s head and having 3000 people turn to Christ in one day?!  Who doesn’t want the unity, the […]

Friday of Easter 5 – Acts 1

ShareActs 1 “The former account I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began to do and teach . . . ” (Acts 1:1). I find this to be one of the most illuminating verses in the New Testament.  Yes, it is a little strange to think so, but then if you’ve been reading Give […]

Saturday of Quinquagesima Sunday – 1 Corinthians 2

Share1 Corinthians 2 St. Paul is making a very important argument here in I Corinthians 2, but if we treat the Bible as a collection of individual verses to cherry pick for argumentation or meditation, we’ll miss his point.  He seems to be arguing like this: 1.  No one knows the things of a man […]
