Scripture: Acts 20:20 NIV You know that I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you but have taught you publicly and from house to house.
Observation: In the field of optometry, we refer to people having perfect eye sight as having 20/20 vision. Here in Acts 20:20 Paul was speaking to the elders of the church at Ephesus. I have heard people referring to this verse as giving a 20/20 vision for the church. There must be both public meetings AND from house to house.
Application: Being a part of a congregation of believers who meet publically and regularly is an important part of my Christian life. But just as important is my life at home. My church should be concerned that I attend the weekly public meetings, but they should also be concerned about getting the Word into my life at home.
Prayer: Lord, I was so blest by the public meeting this past Sunday. I sensed Your Presence in our worship and in the ministry of the Word. I am also enjoying Your Presence as I study your Word here at home. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
