Last month our devotional reading took us through some of my favorite New Testament writings – I finished out our month with Galatians and Colossians, which are the two most significant writings that turned me around from being a legalistic Christian to a disciple of Jesus learning to walk in freedom.  And we began our devotional month in John the Beloved’s record of the life and ministry of Jesus, which is such a unique and powerful view of the life and ministry of Jesus, and one of the first books I recommend for any new or young believer to immerse themselves in.  Johns gospel story telling is a record of power and majesty and faith, and I love getting back into it and feeling my own faith strengthened!
 
This month we’re launching into Acts, which is the following book to John’s gospel, and takes us into the life of the early church where John leaves us at the end of his record.  Then we’ll finish the month with Paul’s little letter to Titus, who, while he isn’t mentioned by name in the book of Acts, is a significant player with Paul in the missionary journeys we’ll read about there.
 
So here we go again, and thank you for joining me one more time as I get into my little reading ship to explore some wonderful places in God’s Word.  And my faith is gonna be strengthened again as I revisit these places and renew my acquaintance with what the early church did in those first few years!  Pour a cup of coffee and see where the Holy Spirit is gonna challenge you as you read, and see if you can find some time and space to talk with another brother or sister about what these challenges are all about.
Shalom, D.P.
