An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

 Natural Solutions

(Act 13:26 KJV)  Men and brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you feareth God, to you is the word of this salvation sent.

(Proverbs 5 also read)

We have here a group of people that I have heard referred to as the God Fearers.  They were described as a group of gentiles that would listen to what the Jews had to say, have a desire to know this God of whom they spoke, but were not willing to take the step of circumcision.  You can picture how they would be a natural audience for Paul when he made the transition from speaking to the Jews to preaching to the Gentiles.

You may have people like this around you.  My daughter recently had a neighbor who started expressing interest because her daughter was interested.  You might know someone who has watched The Chosen.  God moves people in many ways.  We need to watch for those expressing an interest.  That is how the Holy Spirit works.

It is also possible that someone reading this might be in a class like that.  If so, I invite you to put your faith in Jesus as the one who died for your sins to be forgiven.  

So?  Be alert to the ways in which the Holy Spirit is working around and in you.
