Today we’ll read Deuteronomy chapter 23, Acts chapter 9, and Psalm 69, from the Common English Bible.
May God bless the reading of His Word.
Imagine the mistrust the first Christians must have had of Saul! Remember, they didn’t have the fast communication we have today, so all they knew of him was that he was one of the chief persecutors of the believers. It would have been very hard to put that aside and let him into the fellowship. But Barnabas, otherwise known as the encourager, stepped up and told the apostles about what had happened. On the good reputation of Barnabas, Saul was accepted. Being known as a person of integrity and honor is one of the most precious things you have. Protect your reputation. Live your life in such a way that your word is known to be sterling.
Have a great weekend! Do me a favor? Leave a review at the iTunes store. Last time anyone wrote anything was way back in March. Don’t just assume that someone else will do it. If you receive some kind of benefit from what we do here, take a few moments to write a few words and let others know. It really would mean a lot to me.
