A Real Pest
“For we have found this man [Paul] a real pest…” (Acts 24:5)
The light irritates those who wish to live in darkness, but it brings hope to those who want to walk in the sun.
Paul was a pest to those who wanted to suppress the truth in unrighteousness. May we all be pests like that.
Matthew 4:4 #Biblebites
Today’s Reading: Acts 24:1-9
Questions to ask:
- How does this show the continuation of Jesus’ work now going on in the church?
- How is the gospel, Paul’s preaching, and/or Paul’s defense received?
- What is the Holy Spirit doing in this text?
- What in our reading shows how Paul handled adversity and difficulty?
This year, #Biblebites are following the life and writings of Paul. If you would like a copy of the reading schedule, you can view it here: https://eastlandchristians.org/news-events/2023-vision
