May 5, read through the Bible in a year.

Continuing with 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 is baptized at Philippi. There Paul and Silas went to 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 said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Since they 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. It also records David’s Prayer of Thanksgiving.
