Don’s Daily Devotions

Join us as we read the scriptures and a daily devotion written by Don Crisp. We pray these messages will bless us all at this time.

Starting on Monday 6th April, we will be sharing daily devotional readings, prepared for us by Don Crisp. Don will be leading us through the Gospel of John, starting this Easter time with John 13. He then moves into Paul’s Letter to the Philippians.


Acts chapter 19 v 1-7:

Acts chapter 19 v 1-7: V1:  While Apollos is at Corinth, Paul comes to Ephesus. Seemingly the Lord has opened the way for the promised return visit of ch18 v21, though we don’t know how much time has passed. There he meets ” certain disciples” – the following verses tell us they do not yet…


Acts chapter 18 v 24-28:

Acts chapter 18 v 24-28: V24:  We learn of Apollos, who comes from Alexandria in Egypt, a centre of learning and philosophy, and arrives in Ephesus. He is a gifted speaker, knowing and revering the OT Scriptures.  V25:   He has received some Christian teaching – we don’t know where, or from whom – and is…


Acts chapter 18 v 18-23:

Acts chapter 18 v 18-23:  V18:  Paul stays even longer in Corinth, probably largely teaching and encouraging the church, then takes leave of them and sails for Syria. taking with him Priscilla and Aquila. The vow referred to seems to be a Jewish practice – he was always a Jew, think of his longing for…


Acts Chapter 18 v 12-17:

Acts Chapter 18 v 12-17: V12:  After this period, when a man named Gallio becomes the ” pro-consul of Achaia” ( Greece ), ( the Roman governor ) the Jews again attack Paul angrily, and bring him before the tribunal ( the governor’s place of judgement .) V13:  They charge Paul with teaching people to…


Acts chapter 18 v 6-11:

Acts chapter 18 v 6-11: V6:  But the Jews in the synagogue ( probably especially their leaders ) now oppose Paul and revile him. Just as at Antioch of Pisidia, in chapter 13, he sees this as a clear indication from God that their rejection of the Gospel means he will turn from them, and…


Acts chapter 18 v1-5:

Acts chapter 18 v1-5: V1:  Paul now travels on to Corinth. The church that was planted there,( and some of it’s later problems) is well known to us through the 2 NT letters he later wrote to them. V2:  We learn of Aquila and Priscilla, Jewish Christians who have left Rome when the Emperor Claudius…


Acts chapter 17 v 29-34:

Acts chapter 17 v 29-34: V29:  Since God is our Creator, no-one should think this great and living God can be represented by man-made idols. V30:  A difficult verse, but it seems to mean that God has left men in general to their ignorance and false religions until the coming of Christ, but now, in…


Acts chapter 17 v 22-28:

Acts chapter 17 v 22-28: V22:  Paul speaks of how the ” very religious” Athenians will ” accept” any kind of god – reminding us of how some today will say ” if your religion is good for you, fine .. but it’s not for me”. V23:  But among the many idols in Athens, he has seen…


Acts chapter 17 v 16-21:

Acts chapter 17 v 16-21: V16:  While he waits for his team, Paul’s spirit is stirred up at the massive evidence of idolatrous worship which dominates Athens. ” Provoked”, surely both with anger at the dishonour to God, and with grief at the blindness of men in the grip of such false religion. Are we similarly…


Acts chapter 17 v 10-15:

Acts chapter 17 v 10-15: V10:  The believers at once send Paul and Silas away , v14 tells us this must have included Timothy too, and perhaps Luke. This shows their concern not only for the missionaries’ safety, but for the ongoing spread of the gospel. The infant church in Thessalonica is in God’s hands, and…
