Let's get started!!
Read Luke 23-24, then Pray Psalm 118. Write two verses from this story on your heart: 23:34 and 24:47.
Read Acts 1-2, then Pray Psalm 119:1-32. The Story of Jesus is certainly one of faith. But not “blind faith” or “ya just gotta buhleeeeve” faith. Consider Acts 1:3. Then consider the word “witnesses” in 1:8. This is then followed by the UNDOING of the curse of Babel way back in Genesis 11 when the people hear the disciples preaching in their own languages. We tell the story of what happened. What actually happened! We spread the love and hope of Jesus—we tell the story!—beginning in Jerusalem (home), then Judea (nearby), then Samaria (the nearby place we don’t like) and then to the ends of the earth. Don’t miss the weekly rhythms of how this unfolds as described in 2:42-47!
Read Acts 3-4, then Pray Psalm 119:33-64. Zoom in on 3:17-23. Consider “times of refreshing” in verse 19. This is His plan, His working in this world until (as we see in verse 21) “the time comes for God to restore everything…”
Read Acts 5-6, then Pray Psalm 119:65-96. How often do we pause to remember that WE are now the temple(s) of God? And yet that is exactly what it means for us to gather and then to scatter, carrying the love and hope of Jesus (His LIGHT) into the world. This is where Gamaliel’s words in Acts 5:38-39 have echoed through history… for nearly two thousand years.
Read Acts 7-8, then Pray Psalm 119:97-128. Study Luke 17:20-21 carefully. Stephen recounts nearly the entire Old Testament in Acts 7! This is what we are to do! To keep telling the story, only now we include Stephen and all the other New Testament people in that story. See Acts 8:4!
Read Acts 9-10, then Pray Psalm 119:129-152. Slow down with Acts 9 where Saul meets Jesus. Zoom in on Jesus’ words to Saul. Put yourself in the shoes of Ananias! Ponder the days following the event. Head over to 1 Timothy 1:12-17 to get some of Saul’s (also known as the Apostle Paul) thoughts about this event.
Read Acts 11-12, then Pray Psalm 119:153-176. Look at what happens in Acts 11:19 and following. They “began to speak to Greeks also…” The work of the Spirit is to build an international, multi-ethnic community of people from every walk of life who are given NEW LIFE in and through Jesus…literally embodying Him in this broken world sharing His love and hope with EVERYONE!
