SAA Notes

Opposition arises when some people’s profits are challenged. Such opposition today from groups, who make money out of religion, drugs, abortion, prostitution, and many other profit enterprises, should not surprise us.

SJA Notes

* Holy God, thank You for teaching us from Your word today.

“And you see and hear that not only in Ephesus but in almost all of Asia this Paul has persuaded and turned away a great many people, saying that gods made with hands are not gods.”

The world will not accept the truth of who God is, nor will it accept the life of a believer that has been irrevocably changed by the Holy Spirit bringing new life into dead hearts.

A dead heart and stubborn will ignores the folly of idolatry, of rejecting the Creator God.

But a heart made new, a mind that is renewed by and in the Spirit, wants to be singular in devotion to its Saviour God!

Because in Christ we have FREEDOM from the tyranny of sin, from human nature seeking power and wealth through whatever means are at hand (spiritual or earthly).

The dead heart is not free.

But in Christ we are!

* Dear God,

Thank You for making our dead hearts alive in You.

Thank You for freeing us from the chains of sin that wrap so tight.

Thank You for giving us life!
