Day 40!!!!!!! How's your reading going???

Acts 25-27


Did anything stick out to you in todays reading?

I liked how Paul summed up the Christian message when he was talking to King Agrippa in 26:17-20.

“I preached that they should repent and turn to God (that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith, vs.17) and prove their repentance by their deeds.” (vs.20)

That sums it up!  So simple! 
However, some Christian teachers in our culture today, fear the concept of “works for salvation” so much, that they tend to ignore that last line, “..prove their repentance”.  Yet, it was part of the few words Paul chose to sum up his message…….Interesting….


Our pastor asked the congregation last Sunday, “How would you prove to others you were a Christian?”  Good question, don’t ya think?  Get’s you to think……

Yes, it is interesting that he didn't say "so you will go to heaven when you die"- at least specifically. I suppose it is implied if your sins are forgiven. I think we can prove that we at least are following Christ to others- by what we do and say. But only God truly knows our heart. It is good to think on that one.
I pray that my actions would be different than the worlds. And I hope people aren't left guessing when they look at me! 😜
