Bible Reading Day 198

Day 198: July 17 (Acts 19:21-41)

Good morning!

A brief comment this morning, and I will let you read the passage for yourself!

We noted yesterday that ungodly worship has no place in the life of a follower of Jesus. Today we see an episode where the true colors of pagan worship are seen – it is ultimately about gods made by human hands, and therefore about power, profit, and popularity.

The riot in Ephesus stems from these three powerful forces feeling threatened by the simple power of the gospel of Jesus.

I encourage you to reflect on your own life for a moment: are there any areas that are influenced by ungodly priorities? How can you turn those areas around to Jesus?

Have a great day!
