Friday, June 16th: Nehemiah 4-6; Acts 2:22-47 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Nehemiah 4-6; Acts 2:22-47

Our OT passage today is a study on overcoming opposition and continuing to persevere despite social injustice, government corruption, and just general pushback.  

Sometimes we think that if something doesn't come easily it must be God shutting a door and we want to look for an open window somewhere.  God can shut door sometimes of course.  But often we experience resistance and opposition when we are doing the right thing!  Of course Satan is going to attack that.  But He who is within us is greater than he who is in the world.  And with His help we will not be defeated, we will persevere, and we will not give up!

Acts 2:41
41 So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.

What an amazing day that must have been! Three thousand people came to know the Lord, that's about how many people live in our town. It's awesome when one person comes to know the Lord and gives their life to Him
