     On March 31st we began reading through the Acts of the Apostles. These are the stories of the men and women who walked with Jesus and witnessed His resurrection. It is also the account of those who came to know Christ through the preaching of the Apostles and spread of the gospel by believers. 
     The most compelling real life story is that of Saul who was converted after Jesus appeared to him on the road to Damascus where he carried letters from the high priest  "so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem." (Acts 9:2)
     Renamed the apostle Paul, this chosen man went on to become a missionary to the Gentiles, plant churches and write the inspired letters that make up most of the New Testament.
     The book of Acts tells us about the founding of the early churches and the lives of ordinary men and women who trusted Christ.  We will be spending our summer reading through this amazing book and learning to trust Him for great things in our own lives.
     In the fall we will begin with the inspired letters (epistles) written to the churches which were planted during this time. I would like to encourage each of you to read through the book of Acts as we continue this study. I know that many of you will be vacationing during the summer, but all of the weekly posts will remain online and it will be easy to catch up with the readings you miss.
     In September we will begin reading the letters to the churches intended for all who would believe on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.  "For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope."  (Rom 15:4  NKJV)
     I want to thank all of you who have been subscribers to THE GOD WHO SEES ME - A Devotional Prayer Journal since we began in February, 2008. For those of you who have just joined us, welcome to our journey through God's Word.
