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 5: 17-42
Ananias and Sapphira told a lie and fell dead. An angel released the apostles from prison. Gamaliel advised, “Leave these men alone.”
Evening Reading from the Old Testament: Esther 4-6
Mordecai asked Esther to plead with the king. Esther said, “Hold a fast. I will go to the king against the law, and if I die, I die.”
Esther won favour with the king. She said, “Let the king and Haman come to a feast tomorrow.” Haman built a gallows to hang Mordecai.
That night the king read about the plot against him. Haman came to ask about hanging Mordecai. The king told Haman to honour Mordecai.
