Sunday – Notes from Church

I usually take notes during the sermons at church but then do nothing with them. I am thinking I will make mention here of the more memorable and noteworthy parts of the lesson, so that the ideas are recorded and easily reviewed by me. And perhaps will help share an important thought to someone who might need to see it.

Acts 17:1-10 (New International Version)

Acts 17
In Thessalonica
1When they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where there was a Jewish synagogue. 2As his custom was, Paul went into the synagogue, and on three Sabbath days he reasoned with them from the Scriptures, 3explaining and proving that the Christ[a] had to suffer and rise from the dead. “This Jesus I am proclaiming to you is the Christ,[b]” he said. 4Some of the Jews were persuaded and joined Paul and Silas, as did a large number of God-fearing Greeks and not a few prominent women.

5But the Jews were jealous; so they rounded up some bad characters from the marketplace, formed a mob and started a riot in the city. They rushed to Jason’s house in search of Paul and Silas in order to bring them out to the crowd.[c] 6But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some other brothers before the city officials, shouting: “These men who have caused trouble all over the world have now come here, 7and Jason has welcomed them into his house. They are all defying Caesar’s decrees, saying that there is another king, one called Jesus.” 8When they heard this, the crowd and the city officials were thrown into turmoil. 9Then they made Jason and the others post bond and let them go.
In Berea
10As soon as it was night, the brothers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue.

The above was the main teaching verse…. About Paul’s road trip…

The two take aways for this week is;

THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS AS THEY SEEM!
and
THERE IS ALWAYS MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE!

My focus scripture for the upcoming week:
1 Thessalonians 5:16-20 (New International Version)

16Be joyful always; 17pray continually; 18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

This will also be the place where I share some of my nature photography. Enjoy and have a wonderful week.
