No wonder he trembled

  1. Paul preached the faith to Felix, Acts 24.24-25. He spoke about what the governor needed to hear: God’s approval, self-control, and coming judgment. No wonder he trembled.

  2. Quote: “A church has no right to make anything a condition of membership which Christ has not made a condition of salvation.” —A.A. Hodge

  3. Hodge is right. Denominations are on the spot, who reject immersion for forgiveness and are left with only a baptism as a requirement for church membership. Oops!

  4. First time in a while: Yesterday, only three of us for the Bible study at the gym. Such are the vagaries of work.

  5. Smartphone now has to be placed next to wifi to pick up signal. Problem with signal strength or old device no longer working well?

  6. An original verse: God knows my every thought, my dire distress; / As to his loving plan, I need not guess.

  7. A Bible verse: “I will be happy and rejoice in your faithfulness, because you notice my pain and you are aware of how distressed I am” Psa 31.7.

What say you?
