Text: Galatians 5:1-26. Grace brings liberty, not liberty to sin (as some profess these days) but to love and serve one another (v.13). Walking in the spirit leads to satisfaction and character is produced by the Holy Spirit not self- effort. The outcome is working of a new life in and through Jesus Christ. Meditate[…]

Text: Galatians 4:1-31. Paul introduces believers as heirs of God and because of that God, offered a gift of His Spirit and poured out His love through His Son into our hearts and His Spirit cries out Abba (Father) (v.6) in recognition of our common heritage. He therefore warns the believers against lapsing into legalities[…]

Text: Galatians 3:1-29. Paul now asks Galatians who could have bewitched them (v.1) partly because they had forsaken the true gospel and had embraced the law once again! They became ritualistic and legalistic, almost negating the grace that comes by faith through Jesus Christ. He affirms that through the law there is a rift but[…]

Text: Galatians 2:1-21. Paul reminds the Galatians that the true gospel does not depend on circumcision. He appeals to Peter and John to follow suit and in a move of gospel boldness rebukes ‘Peter to his face’. The true gospel of Christ is to know that one is justified by faith in Christ, and not[…]

Text: Galatians 1:1-24. Paul goes right into the gist of the matter. He marvels at the Galatians who soon had lost the ‘’Grace of Christ’’! He states that whoever should preach any other gospel is and should be accursed! (vv. 8, 9). He states like in Romans 16:18, that the perversion of the gospel had[…]

Text: Acts 28:1-31. When Paul finally arrived in Rome, he was allowed to stay under house arrest rather than in a prison. He contacted the local Jews and invited them to come to his residence so that he could speak to them about Jesus (vv.17, 20-22). On a certain day, the Jews came to him[…]

Text: Acts 27:1-44. Paul the Apostle is headed for Rome, and in his days travel by sea was faster than over land. He and his friends were put aboard a ship that was going to sail close to the northern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. A great storm blew up and for a long time[…]

Acts 25:1- 26:1-32. The Lord Jesus Christ is using the civil governments to accomplish His plan and purpose in bringing Paul to the city of Rome (23:11). We should remember that Jesus is Lord over all things – He is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. In fact, Paul says that the civil governments[…]

Text: Acts 24:1-27. The meditation for today is similar to yesterday’s – persevering in difficult circumstances. Paul was imprisoned and examined in court (vv. 24-27). But he does not compromise his beliefs, as if that would set him free. Regardless of what happens to him, he speaks the truth. Notice v. 25, what Paul said[…]

Text: Acts 23:1-35. The apostle Paul is being sent by God to the city of Rome (v.11). It will be a strategic move because from there believers will be properly trained by him, and they can go out to all the known world. Remember the story of Joseph in Egypt. God showed him in a[…]
