Observations from today’s readings and today’s S-WOD, Friday, 9 Feb 18:

1. Exodus 29:14 — Sin offering makes the animal offered unclean so that it must be burned away from the holy presence.

2. Exodus 29:18 – An offering totally burned up is a gift to God not shared by the worshipper.

3. Exodus 29:44-46 – A people must be holy and thus committed to God and His work if God is to be present among them.

4. Exodus 30:20 – God is serious about His ministers following His instructions.

5. Exodus 30:36 – ” It shall be most holy for you.” Anything used where God is present must meet His standards of purity.

6. Exodus 30:37-38 – God does not allow things used in His worship to be used in the normal life of this world.

7. Proverbs 9:1, ,2 – Wisdom is organized

8. Proverbs 9:10 — “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” Wisdom that is not founded on God, the Creator of Wisdom, is no wisdom at all.

9. Proverbs 9:13 — Foolish people are loud, proud, lustful, and undisciplined.

10. Acts 2:6 — “And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered….” Once again, the power of the Holy Spirit in your life is not intended just for you but that you might reach others. You have been empowered to go into the world and make disciples.

11. Acts 2:17 – The Spirit works in all genders and all age groups.

12. Acts 2:21 — “And it shall come to pass that everyone who calls upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” The Gospel is for everyone. Calling upon the name of the Lord is more than just uttering words; it is turning to God in your heart.

13. Acts 2:28 — “You have made known to me the paths of life; you will make me full of gladness with your presence.” Jesus said, “I am the way,” or the “Path of Life.” Knowing Jesus is eternal life (see John 17).

14. Acts 2:38 – God’s basic invitation is repentance. This leads to forgiveness and receiving the Spirit.

15. Acts 2:37-40 — “Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Brothers, what shall we do?’ And Peter said to them, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself. And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, ‘Save yourselves from this crooked generation.’” God’s call results in a “cut” heart, repentance, and a new life empowered by the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and for everyone around you. Spread the word.

16. Acts 2:40 — “Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, ‘Brothers, what shall we do?’ And Peter said to them, ‘Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.’” God’s call results in a “cut” heart, repentance, and a new life empowered by the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you. “Save yourselves from this crooked generation.”

17. Acts 2:42-47 — “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers….. And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need. And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved.” Does this sound like your church?

“Cross” Fit S-WOD (Spiritual Workout of the Day) – 9 Feb 18: Today, devote yourself to “teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.”
