Day 24 Daily Devotions from the Book of Acts
Scripture: Acts 24:2 - Flattery & Lies

"Seeing that through you, we enjoy great peace and prosperity is being brought to this nation by your foresight..."

Tertullus, in his accusations against Paul, comes before the Roman governor with these words of flattery. They are hollow and empty. Full of untruths. He, and the crowd with him, is not interested in the truth, he is only interested in getting what he wants.

We have a similar problem today with the rise of narcissism and consumerism. Everything is about getting what we want. Everything is about us getting our way at any cost. And truth is one of the first things to fall by the wayside. Because the eternal truth, is that God is king, God is judge and God is the centre of the universe (not us).

Lord help me to live in a place where I always keep you in the centre of my life at all times, which is made evident by my pursuit of your truth. Amen.

Day 23 Daily Devotions from the Book of Acts
Scripture: . Acts 23:12 - Unholy Vows

"Some of the Jews banded together and bound themselves under an oath, saying that they would neither eat nor drink till they had killed Paul."

We can take one look at this, and know that it was an unholy vow. There was nothing about this that pleased God. And so our commitment to do never do anything like this, seems rather easy. None of us would make a vow to kill someone.

But we would make other vows. And there is the danger. Vows to not be like someone, vows to never go somewhere. Thing that we decide are right or wrong in our own eyes. And these kinds of vows, these kinds of promises, both internal and external - are of our own doing and for that reason do not honour or please God.

We need vows that come through the inspiration of the Spirit, line up with the word of God, and are not about us, but about the one who saved us.

Lord help the meditations of my heart, and the words of my mouth, be pleasing to you. Amen.
