Day 53: 312 days left…88 books to go!

Numbers 26:52-28
  •  "May the Lord, the God of the spirits fo al mankind, appoint a man over this community to go out and come in before them, one who will lead them out and bring them in, so the Lord's people will not be like sheep without a shepherd."  Chapter 27, Verses 16 & 17
Acts 16:16-40
  •   Such an amazing story in this chapter...
    • "About midnight Paul & Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.  Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken.  At once all the prison doors flew open, and everybody's chains came loose."  Chapter 16, Verses 25 & 26  But Paul & Silas didn't escape and when the jailer realized the prison doors were opened & went to kill himself for this happening on his watch, they said,  "Don't harm yourself!  We are still here!"  Verse 28  and the jailer responded with, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?  They replied, 'Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved- you and your household.  Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house.  At that hour of the night the jailer took them and washed their wounds; then immediately he and all his family were baptized.  The jailer brought them into his house and set a meal before them; he was filled with joy because he had come to believe in God- he and his whole family."  Verses 30-34  And Paul & Silas were acquitted the next day...
