Bible Study
      See how Paul exercised his gift of healing and show forth his superpower from God in the midst of the deadly storm and the deadly snake. 

Bishop N.T. Wright's says (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N._T._Wright):

     The sea and the snake have done their worst and are overcome.  New creation is happening, and the powers of evil cannot stop it.  Paul may arrive in Rome a more bedraggled figure than he would have liked, but the gospel which he brings is flourishing, and nobody can stop it. 

N.T. Wright. Acts for Everyone, Part 2. Louisville,KY:Westminster John Knox Press, 2008, p.232.    
     
     What kind of risks and discouragement can stop you from exercising the gifts you received from the Holy Spirit? What kind of crisis can stop you from trusting Jesus is your only hope? 

Let's have a time to be still and give the Holy Spirit space to speak through the passage of scripture we have just read. Offer this time up to Jesus as you listen to him, while listening to "Gabriel's Oboe"

    What I heard from Jesus today is: Nothing can stop God's work

    What I received from Jesus is a confirmation that we are under a perfect protection of God in God's timing and way. See how Paul went through all those danger and sufferings. The lesson we can learn is that nothing can stop God's work. You can't. But, you can exercise your free will to pull out from God's team and God's work. Well, no one is indispensable. If you pull out, then you will be left out. 

Dear Lord Jesus,                                                                                 Lead us to understand that nothing can stop your work and that we need to follow you closely and faithful each day. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
