Our journey through the book of Acts continues this week with Acts chapter 19. Take time and read the chapter before service. But don't just read it. Do this:
1. Pray. Ask the Holy Spirit to engage your heart and mind in the text.
2. Write. Jot down a verse or passage where you see God working; copy a passage that was particularly meaningful to you; note a passage you have a question about.
3. Ask. Call out to God to align your heart and mind with His ways as shown in the chapter.
