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.

Wednesday 7 October:  Acts 7: 39-45a : V39-40:  Israel rebelled in the wilderness, not only against Moses but against God, of course. rejecting God’s messenger they demanded a “visible god” like they had known in Egypt.

Tuesday 6 October Acts 7: 33-38

Tuesday 6 October  Acts  7: 33-38 V33:  Moses must learn, and be humbled before, God’s Holiness. Do we always remember that we come to a Holy God, or can we at times be too casual in our approach to Him – though He is the God of all grace? V34:  God declares He is now about…

Monday 5 October: Acts 7:23-32:

Monday 5 October:  Acts 7:23-32: V23:  Stephen speaks of how Moses, now aged 40, was moved to visit his fellow Israelites in their slavery.

Wednesday 30 September : Acts 6: 9-15:

Wednesday 30 September :  Acts 6: 9-15: V9:  Stephen’s powerful witness rouses bitter opposition, coming we’re told from Jews of the scattered dispersion, though clearly in Jerusalem at this time.

Monday 28 September: Acts 6:5-8: V5: 7 men are duly chosen. Of Stephen, we learn more immediately, of Philip in ch 8, of the rest we know nothing more.
