Acts 17:11-12 (NIV)
11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. 12 As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.

Lord, help me to receive Your message with great eagerness and examine the Scriptures every day. Thank You for your Gospel story, Your mercy, grace and Your faithfulness which You have demonstrated throughout this book. Thank you that You have provided such a rich resource for me to learn, grow, listen, enjoy and gain direction from You. Take me deeper into Your Word through Bible Studies as You lead the group to learn and grow in knowledge and love of You. Amen.
