May 23 Read Acts 11 How the church grows
Wednesday, May 23, 2018      3 comments

Peter returns to Jerusalem and we see that prejudices still run deep, he's criticized for preaching to the gentiles. Also in Phoenicia and Antioch they spoke the word only to Jews. Yet the gentiles heard it also, and the church grew, how is that... Read more
May 22 Read Acts 10 Why do we argue with God?
Tuesday, May 22, 2018      2 comments

Maybe I speak only for myself but I think that at times we Christians all argue with God. Peter has the attitude that he's better than the common pagan. He's never defiled himself with unclean foods, or by hanging out with the unclean gentiles.... Read more
May 21 Read Acts 9 God, are you sure about this?
Monday, May 21, 2018      1 comments

Have you ever thought about this question? I must confess that I have. We have ideas about what we think should happen, and we have ideas of what people will or might do, and take action according to those ideas. But many times we're wrong. I em... Read more
May 18 Read Acts 8 Receiving the Holy Spirit
Friday, May 18, 2018      5 comments

The debate has gone on for decades, perhaps even centuries as to when a believer receives the Holy Spirit. I'm sure that I won't end it today. This chapter is one reason for the continued discussion. The Samaritans accepted Jesus but there was n... Read more
May 17 Read Acts 7 We are all stiff necked people
Thursday, May 17, 2018      0 comments

Stephen's discourse is brilliant on level with genius. He begins with the father Abraham, recounting the history of the nation and hitting on all the great highlights. I imagine the elders are smiling as he tells the stories of Isaac, Jacob and ... Read more
May 16 Read Acts 6 Should I give up preaching the word of God to serve tables?
Wednesday, May 16, 2018      0 comments

It's whats recorded as being said by the early apostles but I think they had it wrong. To me serving tables is preaching the word of God. Jesus told us to be servants to all. There are two principles that should dictate the lives of believers, t... Read more
May 15 Read Acts 5 If this is of man, it will fail. But if it is of God, you cannot stop it
Tuesday, May 15, 2018      3 comments

It's a paraphrase but very accurate. The best arguments for the accuracy of the bible is the continued existence of the Jewish people and the practice of their religion. There is no other nation or people who can still trace their ancestry back ... Read more
May 14 The gospel in a broke down truck
Monday, May 14, 2018      0 comments

This is a bit of a different blog today, taking a detour from the book of The Acts. I will reference a scripture later. My thoughts may ramble a bit, I'll try to tie them together so bear with me until the end. I've become a bit of a cynic, well... Read more
May 11 Read Acts 3 The Holy Spirit makes all the difference
Friday, May 11, 2018      4 comments

There are several lessons in this chapter, we could look at the lame man who was healed but I think that gets a lot of attention. What I find most incredible is that just a short time ago Peter would not admit that he knew Jesus and today he's p... Read more
May 10 Read Acts 2 Speaking in other tongues
Thursday, May 10, 2018      2 comments

I don't wish to debate anyone about the speaking in tongues, simply looking at the record from a possible different perspective. I think that most of the people I've known believe they were speaking some unknown language and by the Holy Spirit t... Read more
May 9 Read Acts 1 So are you going to fix us now?
Wednesday, May 09, 2018      0 comments

I've done this and had people do it to me, in the midst of a conversation the second party thinks they know what the first is going to say or do and blurts it out. Usually it's wrong. When I'm giving instructions and someone does this with the w... Read more
May 7 Read John 21 Jesus asked; "Do you love me more than...?"
Monday, May 07, 2018      6 comments

It's the question He asked Peter but He could ask any of us. Ask most any Christian if they love Jesus and the answer is yes. But most don't really think about it. The first commandment in the Torah was to love The Lord with all your heart, soul... Read more
May 4 Read John 20 There's a reason for everything
Friday, May 04, 2018      1 comments

Even mosquitoes have a purpose, I have no idea what that purpose is though. I typically hate the expression that everything happens for a reason. It's usually some lame attempt to bring comfort. In most cases the reason is that someone did somet... Read more
May 3 Read John 19 The Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken.
Thursday, May 03, 2018      0 comments

Just think about this for a moment. Crucifixion is a brutal form of execution. The condemned dies from suffocation, hanging with their arms extended and little support makes it progressively harder to breathe. Breaking someones legs prevents the... Read more
May 2 Read John 18 Whom do you seek and what is truth?
Wednesday, May 02, 2018      2 comments

Two very important questions. I believe that everyone is seeking for someone and we have different motives. The lonely are looking for a friend, some are looking for a teacher, some a student. Some seek the powerful and others to elevate their ... Read more
