Read the New Testament in a year, one chapter a day, five days a week

Day 47/260: Read Acts 23

What are your plans for tomorrow? Next week? Next year? Have you consulted the Lord about those plans?

God does not talk to us directly today like He did in times past, like He did to Paul. Jesus said, “Be of good cheer, Paul; for as you have testified for Me in Jerusalem, so you must also bear witness at Rome.” Jesus had a plan for Paul. He was using the former Pharisee to spread the testimony of Christ, the Son of the Living God, throughout the world in the first century.

He has plans for us today as well. While we do not receive direct revelation from Him, we can live for Him each day in whatever circumstance we are found.

Paul testified in Jerusalem, and in every city he visited during his missionary journeys. Are we spreading God’s good news wherever we go? At work, at school, at home, we should be shining our light for Christ so others can glorify God.

Be of good cheer, reader! Jesus has a plan for you; live faithfully for Him and bear fruit!

Memory (Copy into a notebook 5-10 times)

Acts 22:16. And now why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord.


Pray for opportunities to demonstrate the love of God to those around you today. Praise Him for His blessings.
