Bible Reading Day 205

Day 205: July 24 (Acts 23:12-35)

Good morning!

After Paul’s speech to the Jewish high council, God tells him he will preach in Rome also. Then a group of Jews get together and take a vow not to eat or drink until they have killed Paul! It is sobering how religion can blind you. God commands that we NOT kill, and these religious men are promising God they will not eat or drink until they DO kill!

The plot is discovered by Paul’s nephew who reports it to the Roman commander. As a result Paul is moved to Caesarea where he will be tried by Governor Felix.

Although things are getting worse for Paul, his circle of influence keeps growing! How about you? Is God opening your heart to follow Him wherever that may lead? How can you influence others with your testimony?

Have a great day!
