More Than Just Information

“I worship the God of my ancestors according to the Way, which they call a sect, believing everything that is in accordance with the law and written in the prophets.” —Acts 24:14

In Acts 24, the apostle Paul faced one of the most difficult circumstances of his life: being imprisoned and accused by the authorities. He had to endure persecution on a constant basis. His character, faith, and faithfulness to the gospel were tested, exposing the core of his beliefs.

In verse 14, Paul declared the foundation for his faith. What he believed was affirmed by his Jewish forefathers but still truthful and powerful for that present time. Being exposed to the Scriptures not only gave him knowledge but also a cause to live for, a hope beyond any self-ambition, dream, or goal. He was a man forever changed.

When you spend time in God’s Word, you are exposed to truth that should produce good and lasting fruit in you. Is this Word of Life changing the way you live? Pray that, like Paul, the Word of God will transform you forever.
