March 19, Reading 3 – Acts 21:17-40

SAA Notes

Paul admits the authority of James and the elders. He does what they suggest. Paul is not lawless. He is a team player. How do you react when you suffer while doing something good and right?

SJA Notes

* Dear Lord God, please show us Your grace and mercy today as we read Your word.

“And when they saw the tribune and the soldiers, they stopped beating Paul.”

Israelite’s were the cause of this uproar. God’s people through Abraham’s bloodline, following Paul and stirring up crowds to blood-thirsty violence.

“I beg you, permit me to speak to the people.”

Even after the beating Paul wants to speak with the crowd.

He wants to tell them about Jesus.

Do we have the same drive to tell people about Jesus?

* Father God,

Please cause within us a similar sure and steady hope in You as we see in Paul.
