Noble Character

July 12

Daily Bible Reading: Acts 17:1 – 15

Verse of the Day: Acts 17:11 – “Now these were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, examining the scriptures daily, whether these things were so.”

Being is more important than doing in the Scriptures. Doing is part of our challenge by Jesus, but He always emphasizes that what we do is measured by who we are. In our account today, the Berean believers were spoken of as being a nobler people because they spent time in the Word of God. 

God is saying that these people were able to do what they needed to do by being what they were supposed to be. And how did they have the character to be what they were to be? By spending time in God’s Word.

Want true Christian character in your life? How much time do you spend in His Word?

Prayer: Holy Father, I want to be like Your Son. I know I need to be in Your Word, encourage me and keep me in the Bible. I long to be an image of Jesus. Amen.
