    I am very blessed with this verse and I have learnt something.Giving is a source of blessings

    It is very important and be blessed for us to give than to receive. Without thanksgiving to God we will not receive his blessing. This is the commandment of the Lord that needs to be obeyed."Love One Another as God loves us" Obedience to God's words are more important than prayers. Thanks to the blood of Jesus that shed for us. His blood is more than enough to give us life. Trust in God and keep thanking and praising him for he is worthy to be praised. There is no other Jehovah its only Jesus our life, our Savior and our Peace. Amen

    vs 29-30 When Christ departs men will break the Church he just organized into the many churches of today.
  • Mike Jamerson for verse 9
    Eutychus was neither in the window nor out of the window, neither in or out. Just window shopping so to speak. This the way a lot of Christians are today. Not all the way in not all the way out. Just window shopping.
  • Taban Moses for verse 35
    Thanks for this scripture that God gave us the authority to give and be blessful but to the real needy and the weak i will give
  • Rolando Custodio for verse 28
    My understanding on the "he " in the phrase "which he hath purchased with his own blood " referes to our Lord Jesus Christ because according to the Bible, of all the Messenger sent by our God Our Holy Father in Heaven and Whom we owed our lives to earth in order to spread the gospel of salvation teach mandkind that there is only one God and there is only one Mediator between God and Men , it was Jesus Christ Who sacrificed His life for the Church for salvation. Because the Church of God was purchased by Jesus Christ, the same become His Christ Church since, as it is written, He, Christ, purchased it , Jesus Christ become the Head of the Church of God, which become His Church, or Church of Christ. Our loving God love Him Jesus Christ dearly because Jesus Christ was submissive to God, i.e., Jesus Christ obeyed the Laws and Will of God and set aside His self-interest. As it is written, of all men, no sin found to Jesus Christ, an example of an eternal and faithful love to His Creator.Because of the qualities of Jesus Christ, He became the Mediator between men and God because men, being flesh, are weak sinful. Men cannot go directly anymore to our loving God because sin sepaprate men from God. The reason why Jesus Christ Has taught us that we must be righteous and pray to God in Jesus Christ 's name. But we must understand that committing sin is not tolerated because as it is written, the prayer of sinful will not be heard. Let us quote Acts 20:28 and analyse: Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
