Today’s Reading: Acts 17:1-15
The people here were more open-minded than those in Thessalonica, since they welcomed the message with eagerness and examined the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.
Sermon Main Idea: The Holy Spirit energizes the Church for doing God’s Work and seeking God’s Word.
- Eagerness for God’s Work (v.1-5)
- Enmity toward God’s Church (v.6-10)
- Enthusiasm for God’s Word (v.11-15)
Prayer: O Precious LORD, You by Your grace grant Your Holy Spirit to us, Who gives us strength and energy to do all the things that You desire. Help me to be centered on You in all that I do. Keep my gaze upon You in all situations, that my work would be Your Work and my will would be Your Will. In Jesus’ Name I pray, AMEN.
