Weekly Truth

from the This Is the New Testament reading plan

Acts 13:27-31

BY She Reads Truth

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the good news of Jesus with us wherever we go. 

As we survey the New Testament, we’re memorizing Acts 13:27–31. This week, we’ll work on adding verse 28. Each day, revisit this verse and say it aloud at least two times. See if you can recite both verses 27 and 28 from memory by the end of the week. 

27 Since the residents of Jerusalem and their rulers did not recognize him or the sayings of the prophets that are read every Sabbath, they have fulfilled their words by condemning him. 28 Though they found no grounds for the death sentence, they asked Pilate to have him killed. 29 When they had carried out all that had been written about him, they took him down from the tree and put him in a tomb. 30 But God raised him from the dead, 31 and he appeared for many days to those who came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who are now his witnesses to the people.
—Acts 13:27–31

    It is not a fun club to be a part of. Unfortunately there are so many of us who have suffered with this. After going through with myself I have learned that no matter what, God is faithful. This looks different everyday. It may mean he helps you get through the day, or laugh for the first time again, or feel more intimate with your marriage. It may come in all kinds of forms. But I want you to know anything you feel is valid and God is going to carry you through it. Praying for you sister.

    @Mafison, I am so sorry. I also had a miscarriage at 12 weeks. You are right. God is good, but losing a baby is hard. I will be praying for you all.
