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:

  1. How does this show the continuation of Jesus’ work now going on in the church?
  2. How is the gospel, Paul’s preaching, and/or Paul’s defense received?
  3. What is the Holy Spirit doing in this text?
  4. 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:
