Bible Verse For The Day and Song
Ian would like to thank everyone for all the positive and helpful comments he has received over these past three months of running these daily reflections during lockdown. Ian has decided, for now, to press pause. In this final week, our Bible verses will bring us up to the pivotal moment in Acts and the Church, which is the conversion of Saul.
We continue on the theme of practicing gratitude, by taking opportunities to reflect upon our lockdown experiences. Today give thanks to God for three things you’ve gained during lockdown and you want to keep moving out of lockdown.

Today’s verse is: Acts 8 v.14-17
Now when the apostles at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them. The two went down and prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit (for as yet the Spirit had not come upon any of them; they had only been baptised in the name of the Lord Jesus). Then Peter and John laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
Acts 8 v.14-17
“For our songs of praise, I have gone melancholic and chosen the songs which have impacted me most during lockdown, in the order they have. Inevitably there have been different stages to this lockdown spiritually, and I leave them with you to reflect upon.”
