In the morning let us prepare for the new day with the words of the New Testament and in the evening let us reflect on how God moves in the lives of his people.

Morning Reading from the New Testament: Acts 2: 14-47

At Pentecost they were filled with the Spirit. Peter told the crowd, “You crucified Jesus but God has made him Lord.” 3,000 believed.

Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Nehemiah 4-6

Sanballat ridiculed us and plotted to attack Jerusalem. So we prayed and posted a guard. The builders carried swords as they worked.

The people cried out, “We have to borrow to get grain.” I told the nobles, “Let us stop exacting usury.” I did not take my allowance.

Sanballat and Tobiah sent for me to do me harm. I replied, “Why should I come?” The wall was finished and our enemies were afraid.
