Today we read one chapter in the Acts of the Apostles and two chapters in 2 Samuel.
May 5: Acts 16, 2 Samuel 6, 2 Samuel 7 (click on the chapter to begin reading)
Acts 16. Timothy joined Paul and Silas in Lystra, in Troas Paul received “the Macedonian Call”. Lydia, a new convert was baptized at Philippi. There Paul and Silas were put in prison, but while singing praises to God their chains fell off, the Philippian Jailer, rather than killing himself asked “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they answered, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Since Paul and Silas were Roman citizens they were asked to leave secretly, but they went to Lydia’s house instead. After that they departed.
In 2 Samuel 6 the Ark was brought to Jerusalem.
!n 2 Samuel 7 God established the covenant with David. The writer also recorded David’s Prayer of Thanksgiving.
