We had a guest preacher a few weeks ago and he taught on Acts 8:29-39
and though I had studied the book of Acts before (this Summer as a matter of fact) I don't recall this story.
Our friend went on to offer a simple reminder of this story:
Be Sensitive to the Spirit
Surrender to God's Call
Sacrifice to God's Mission
What a great lesson for all of us. I had to ask myself, am I being sensitive to the Spirit?
Will I surrender to God's call? and Am I willing to sacrifice to God's mission?
So instead of picking a single verse from the lesson I used the simple reminder in my Bible.
It isn't very fancy but it is BOLD which is exactly what I wanted.
It is good to have a BOLD reminder to be obedient to the Spirit, Call, & Mission.
