Today's Passage: Acts 2:22-28
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the chapter NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
22. "People of Israel, listen! God publicly endorsed Jesus the Nazarene by doing powerful miracles, wonders, and signs through him, as you well know.
23. But God knew what would happen, and his prearranged plan was carried out when Jesus was betrayed. With the help of lawless Gentiles, you nailed him to a cross and killed him.
24. But God released him from the horrors of death and raised him back to life, for death could not keep him in its grip.
25. King David said this about him:
'I see the Lord is always with me.
I will not be shaken, for he is right beside me.
26. No wonder my heart is glad,
and my tongue shouts his praises!
My body rests in hope.
27. For you will not leave my soul among the dead
or allow your Holy One to rot in the grave.
28. You have shown me the way of life,
and you will fill me with the joy of your presence.'
Acts 2:22-28 NLT
3rd strategy for familiar passages. Read Anew!
Read the passage from Last to First!
Sometimes we have read a passage of Scripture so many times we can't see it with new eyes.
How can we change the passage without changing the meaning?
What would we see if we take a passage and begin with the last verse and read the verses from Chapter 2.
For example: Chapter 2:28-22.
Thank you God for your reassurance in these verses.
Thank you for always being faithful.
Heal our hearts of discouragement.
Replace any doubts with faith and hope.
In your name I pray,
Jehoshua, Son of God,
Please leave your name and last initial in the comments below.
If you find that God has given you something to praise Him for, please share.
Thank you for being here.
