April 27, read through the Bible in a year.

Continuing with the Acts of the Apostles and two chapters in 1 Samuel.

April 27: Acts 8, 1 Samuel 16, 1 Samuel 17 (click on the chapter to begin reading)

Acts 8, Saul persecutes the Church, it was so  severe that the believers scattered all over the nations. Thanks to that, the Gospel reaches Samaria where they meet Simon the Sorcerer,  even he comes to believe, but he still thinks the Holy Spirit can be purchased with money! Finally Philip meets the Ethiopian eunuch. Thanks to God’s word in the scroll of Isaiah, he too came to believe and is baptized.

1 Samuel 16, Saul anoints David as King after rejecting all of David’s older brothers and David enters into Saul’s service, still being the titular King. Whenever Saul’s spirit troubles him David plays for him and that soothes Saul.

1 Samuel 17 tells the story of David and Goliath. Just read it, it is great reading.
