Today's readings are from Acts 16-17
I'm amazed that after all the discussion from Ch. 15 about whether or not the Gentiles should follow Jewish custom and so forth that Paul decided that Timothy should be circumcised...interesting. It is neat to see how Paul came upon Timothy in this passage too because we know later that Paul ends up writing two letters to Timothy, one being the last one he would ever write. I also love the story of the "Macedonia vision." I feel that God still opens up doors like this and give us direction in ways like this. For example, we have had many people asking for us to plant a Journey campus in Hartsville. This is kind of like a Macedonia call.
My favorite story in Acts 17 is the story of Paul going to Athens. I could preach an entire sermon and write a week's worth of blog post on this chapter. So...I'll let you give your thoughts and comments on this chapter and throw my thoughts in as you guys toss it around.
