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 14 v 8-13:

Acts chapter 14 v 8-13: V8:  At Lystra, they encounter a man lame from birth. Though it is not actually said, he was probably dependent on begging for alms, like the man Peter and John met in ch 4. V9:  It seems that Paul is actually preaching wherever this man is, and as he listens…


Acts chapter 14 v 1-7:

Acts chapter 14 v 1-7: V1:  Coming to Iconium, a city in the region of Galatia, Paul and Barnabas still begin in the Jewish synagogue there ( even after ch 13 v 46.), where the Lord immediately seals their ministry with Gospel blessing, both Jews and Gentile God-fearers coming to faith through the message preached…


Acts chapter 13 v 46-52:

Acts chapter 13 v 46-52:   V46:  Paul and Barnabas now boldly declare that while it was right, and necessary for them to declare the Gospel to the Jews first ( Romans 1 v16.) the rejection it now receives from so many, and in which they condemn themselves, signifies to them that in God’s will…


Acts chapter 13 v 40-45:

Acts chapter 13 v 40-45:   V40-41:  He warns his hearers of the consequences of rejecting this Gospel, which again he grounds in OT Scripture, quoting Habakkuk 1 v5. The people of that day would not listen to what they were told from God, let his hearers not make the same mistake. How this speaks…


Acts chapter 13 v 32-39:

Acts chapter 13 v 32-39:   V32-33:  So, the message they bring is indeed the promised ” good news”, now fulfilled in Jesus, whose Resurrection too was foretold in OT Scripture. Paul quotes and applies to this the words of Psalm 2 v7, declaring the sonship of God’s Anointed One. V34-35:  Other Scriptures follow – Isaiah…


Acts chapter 13 v27-31:

Acts chapter 13 v27-31:   V27:  The rejection of this Saviour by the leaders of the Jews and the people of Jerusalem generally was itself a fulfilment of OT prophecy, Paul goes on – the prophecies so familiar to them ( and to this synagogue congregation ) yet not understood by them and rejected. (…


Acts chapter 13 v21-26:

Acts  chapter 13 v21-26:   V21:  Paul next speaks of the peoples’ demand for a King, and how first ” God gave them Saul”,emphasising that this was God’s sovereign purpose, a solemn thought when we consider the outcome, but truly all things are in His Hands. V22:  God then “removed Saul”, and raised up David,…


Acts chapter 13 v13-20:

Acts chapter 13 v13-20:   V13:  Paul and his companions now sail from Cyprus to “Perga in Pamphylia”, a province of Asia Minor. Luke simply records that here ” John ( Mark ) left them and returned to Jerusalem”. No reason is given, but the later dispute between Paul and Barnabas over Mark shows that…


Acts chapter 13:6-12:

Acts chapter 13:6-12: V6:  They travel across the island to Paphos ( the port on the West coast, for ships sailing to Asia.) Here they encounter a man named ” Bar-Jesus” ( probably not an act of mockery, for the name, the equivalent of the OT Joshua, was in wide use.) But he is called…


Acts chapter 12:25 – chapter 13:5:

Acts chapter 12:25 – chapter 13:5: V25: The record returns to Barnabas and Saul, who return to Antioch, having completed their ” relief mission” to Jerusalem, and take with them young John Mark, perhaps with an eye on beginning to involve him in Christian service. Ch 13 v1:  We learn of 5 gifted ” prophets…
