The Meeting of Lydia and Apostle Paul

July 2021

Who was Lydia? The women of the Bible were just as varied and interesting as women today. While most of the women that come to mind when we think of biblical times were mothers who worked in or near the home, there were also women living in many situations, specifically workers who helped forward God’s message by giving time and monetary resources to apostles of the Word. One such woman was Lydia, a merchant of purple cloth, which was valuable at the time when Apostle Paul made his journeys, about 40 AD. Perhaps Lydia’s business produced income which she was then able to use to benefit the early church.

The Kingdom of God Is Not Meat and Drink

July 2021

Let us not therefore judge one another any more: but judge this rather, that no man put a stumblingblock or an occasion to fall in his brother's way. I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that there is nothing unclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth any thing to be unclean, to him it is unclean. But if thy brother be grieved with thy meat, now walkest thou not charitably. Destroy not him with thy meat, for whom Christ died. Let not then your good be evil spoken of: For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. For he that in these things serveth Christ is acceptable to God, and approved of men. Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another. – Rom. 14:13–19

The Call to God’s Kingdom

July 2021

And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest. And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head. And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father. Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God. And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house. And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God. – Luke 9:57–62
