Saturday, 19th Week after Pentecost

Text: Acts 20:1-16

Prayer Pointers:

For God to lead you to your discipling partners

To be open to where your Godly mission might take you

For travelers

WE MAY ONLY REMEMBER the “big” names: Peter, Paul, Stephen, Philip; but in every chapter and story of Acts the emphasis is on the community that gathers. Paul does not move but without partners, brothers and sisters who share his passion for the Lord and his desire to share the Good News. Barnabas, Silas, Pricilla and Aquilla, Apollos, and many other names fill the pages of Acts, and although we may not easily recall them to our minds, the success of God’s work depended on them.

In our own time, where we are again faced with a culture that is indifferent or even hostile to the Church and its message, we also need a group of friends to walk with us, to share mission with us, and to support us in our spiritual disciplines. Find someone with whom you can pray, or engage in ministry, or discuss the Scriptures, or some other habit commended by Jesus. To be gathered as even two or three has the blessing of the Lord, and will be good practice for the times that are ahead of us.

May your day be grace-filled ~ Pr. Dave Brooks
