Based on the reading of this passage, and what we discussed on Sunday, what does Luke want us to know about the character of God?
Engage your Neighbor:
The proconsul is described as being “a man of intelligence”. Does sharing your faith with intelligent people intimidate you? Why? If not, where do you draw your confidence from?
Verse 12 shows that the proconsul believed after seeing something and hearing something. How can you show your neighbors Jesus while also telling them about him?
Engage your Family:
Speak with your children about how God’s power and authority is bigger than any sort of “magic” or power that they might be frightened of.
