Believing by hearing!
Scripture reading for May 29th: 2nd Chronicles 9-12, Acts 18
Key Scriptures: Acts 18:8-10 “Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed in the Lord, together with his entire household. And many of the Corinthians hearing Paul believed and were baptized. And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you, and no one will attack you to harm you, for I have many in this city who are My people.””
Paul, coming to Corinth, went first to the Jews to preach Christ Jesus. The synagogue ruler believed and his whole household. Paul was encouraged by the Lord to stay longer and keep preaching the Gospel. A great harvest was to be found in that city, first from the Jews and then from the Gentiles, as many as were drawn to seek the God of Israel.
2nd Chronicles 11:16 “And those who had set their hearts to seek the Lord God of Israel came after them from all the tribes of Israel to Jerusalem to sacrifice to the Lord, the God of their fathers.”
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You that You seek out lost people and draw them to seek You. May I follow Your instructions today. Amen.
