I pray that you are looking forward to this day which the Lord has made for His glory. We have a great opportunity before us today to bring glory to Him. May we be faithful to point others to the Lord.
Today's devotional thought is from Acts 28; and really, it comes from just verse 1. Acts is one of my favorite books of the Bible (besides the other 65) and I have read this passage hundreds of times. But something in Acts 28:1 caught my attention. It is the word "escaped". The verse starts out by saying "And when they were escaped, ..." Normally, escaped is not a major word. We use it often in today's language and know that it means "to break free from confinement or control." It really is not that significant of a word unless, of course, you stop to study it as a Bible word and not as a regular English word. I am afraid that I have read so many Bible words assuming I know what they mean instead of actually knowing what they mean. I wonder how many times I have missed out on the great meaning of a passage because I quickly read over a word.
