HIStory or MYstory

Church Family,

I am reminded more and more just how much I need God's Word. If you read Acts 7 you may have the same question I have: Why did Stephen need to repeat their history to them? Surely they know their own history? 

You can not know History or your Bible without knowing it through Christ! This is why so many people, churches, and nations struggle.

Acts 7:51-53 “You stiff-necked people, uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Spirit. As your fathers did, so do you. 52Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered53you who received the law as delivered by angels and did not keep it.”

1) V53 The people treated the Word as important, but V51 They were stiff necked, uncircumised in heart and ears. They always resist God. They saw their history as theirs and not God's. Is my heart open to what God is revealing about Himself?

2) The more I realize God's love for me, the more I realize how much I resist God. Lord, Forgive me?

3) While reading through Acts I see this theme: Those who are lost are told that they have betrayed and murdered Jesus.

4) What is God showing you during your devotion time?

Love, Serve, Go
