What a great chapter (yes I know I say that a lot! but it is true!!)
Several things jumped out at me, the encounter with Bar-Jesus. I knew there was the encounter but I didn't remember God made him blind and the governor came to Christ because of it.
But the part that I like the most about this passage is the last section. Where Paul states that since the Jews didn't want to hear the message of Jesus they would go to the Gentiles.
I think I've mentioned I work at Azusa Pacific University. We have a wonderful music program and one of my favorite groups is the Male Chorale aka Man Choir. For many years it was the choir for freshmen men that they had to be in before they could try out for University Choir and Orchestra. The current director, however, has made it one of the premiere groups to be in and in 9 years has taken it from a choir of 22 guys to 101 this year. I believe the main reason for the growth is Harold Clousing, the director, teaches them how to be godly men and demonstrates Christ love toward them. This year they were invited to sing at the Medal of Honor recipients banquet and then they were able to go to Washington DC and sing for the National Day of Prayer. During their time in DC they were taken on a tour of the Capitol building. They were allowed to sing there. They chose one of my favorite songs to hear them sing is Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty. The video is a little bumpy, but just amazing to listen to. I hope you are as blessed by these young men as I am.
