Moments with God
New Testament Bible Reading Plan
Day 57

Your word is a lamp to guide my feet
and a light for my path. Psalm 119:105
Psalm 119 105I am holding onto the light from His lamp to get this assignment up and posted today. I know that nothing can be done through my own strength, I have to depend upon Him first, foremost and always. Sometimes He dims my light to remind me that I can only depend on His!
God our Savior,
help us to follow the light
and live the truth.
In You, we have been born again
as sons and daughters of light.
May we be Your witnesses before all the world.
As daylight fills the sky,
fill us with your holy light.
May our lives mirror Your love for us
whose wisdom has brought us into being,
and whose care guides us on our way.


Reading Assignment Acts 17 – 18:1-18

“For in him we live and move and exist. As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ And since this is true, we shouldn’t think of God as an idol designed by craftsmen from gold or silver or stone.” Acts 17:28-29

Acts 17_28
In Thessalonica (1-9)Other than at Philippi, what was Paul’s usual custom on the Sabbath? (Note: there must be ten adult males in an area to have a synagogue.) What was the subject of his teaching?Who received the message? (4) What does it mean to be God-fearing? (Prov. 1:7, 8:13) Why was it hard to fear God in that society and ours?Why were some jealous? (Gen. 37:11, 2 Cor. 11:2) Why is jealousy foolish in the eyes of God? (1 Ki. 10:9, Ezra 3:11, Hos. 1:7, 6:4; Ps. 98:3, Ps. 136)

What was said about Paul’s message? What was said of Jesus? What happened to the new believers? Paul was forced to leave. Because of this not long after this, while in Corinth, Paul wrote the believers in Thessalonica two letters. Read the letters according to the Holy Spirit’s prompting.

In Berea (10-15)

What was the first thing Paul did in Berea? What did the Bereans do to confirm Paul’s words? What can we learn from them?

What did the Thessalonians do when they heard Paul was preaching at their neighboring town? What did Paul have to do? What shows the emergency?

Why did Paul ask for Silas and Timothy to join him right away? (Matt. 18:20, Mk. 6:7) In light of this can a person act alone in the gospel work?

In Athens (16-34)

Why did Paul expand his normal missionary work in Athens? (16-17) What did the educated philosophers think of the simple message of the gospel? (18-21, 1 Cor. 1:23)

How did Paul start his message? (22-23) What does this say about his understanding about giving messages? What famous temple is in Athens?

What does God need from us and how does Paul prove this? (25-26) What does Paul reveal about why you are where your are? (26) Do you know why God wants you were you are?

What does God desire? (27-28) Why should we repent? (29-31) Who will judge us? What is the nature of idol worship? (Rom. 1:21-23) What do you find glory in, praise, and value most? Do you need repentance? What were the two responses to Paul’s message?

“One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision and told him, “Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you, for many people in this city belong to me.” Acts 18:9-10

acts_18_9___wallpaper_by_plmethvin-d3b7ji1Study Questions for Acts 18:1-18A Tent Maker’s Mission (1-8)Where did Paul go next? (1) Who did he meet there? (2) How did Paul support his gospel work? (3, 1 Cor. 9:3-14) When he wasn’t working, what did he do? (4) Is there such an excuse as, “I’m to busy to serve God and live his gospel work”? (Lk. 8:14)

Where had Silas and Timothy been? (17:15) When they finally rejoined him what did Paul do? (5) How did most of the Jews in the synagogue respond? (6) What does shaking ones clothes mean? (6, Matt. 10:14) Who believed in Jesus? (8)

Did Paul and God ever lose his love for Jews? See Romans 11:11-16. What is God’s mysterious future plan? See Romans 11:25-36. In light of this how should we live?

Do Not Be Afraid (9-17)

What did the Lord say to Paul? What does this show us about how Paul was no different from us? How long did Paul stay in Corinth? (11) What does this say about his obedient faith?

What happened to Paul? (12-13) Why did they go to a Greek for help? (8) Why didn’t they beat Paul? (16:37-38)

What does the proconsul’s reaction to the beating tell us about the times? (17)
How should believers in Jesus be different? (Matt. 5:13-16)

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
