Congratulations on finishing this womens online Bible Study course. Acts: Awakening to God in Everyday Life by Melissa Spoelstra has opened our eyes to many Bible truths. Join us for more online Bible studies– we saved you a seat at the Bible Cafe table.
This study on Acts has helped us understand “God’s ultimate authority.” My prayer is that it helped you change your mindset about a current or past struggle in your life. We can feel great comfort knowing God is in control in Heaven and on Earth.
Paul says in Acts 20:26 (NLT)…”I preached… that all must repent of their sins and turn to God—and prove they have changed by the good things they do.” According to this verse, we prove we have changed by the good things we do. As we shed the fruit of the world we put on the Fruit of the Spirit. All good works are motivated by our love for Christ.
As Melissa Spoelstra explains, “Paul’s mission was to open spiritual eyes.” My prayer is that Bible study opens your eyes to the Truth. When you are praying over a situation or event, ask God to help you see with your spiritual eyes. Let the Holy Spirit be your Counselor. “And when he comes, he will open the eyes of the blind and unplug the ears of the deaf.” Isaiah 35:5 NLT
In James 4:8 NKJV, we are instructed to “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” What is one practical way you can draw nearer to God? Open your Bible, say a prayer, worship Him, and meditate on a verse. When you are intentional, He is drawing closer. Be blessed!
And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near. Hebrews 10:25 NLT
How do you feel about having a Holy Spirit boldness as the day of His return is getting closer? Are you boldly making disciples, or hiding your faith? Are you walking with Jesus, or walking with the enemies of God? Are you seeking Him, or seeking the world’s opinion and favor?
Let’s agree to be awake to His day of return. We will not slumber when the Bridegroom arrives.
