“Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. ‘Quick, get up!’ he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists.”    Acts 12:7 NIV


Read: Acts 12 6-19


“I’ve got some news that will knock your socks off!”, the sports commentator screamed.  He had just learned of a favorite player who was being traded to another team.


Imagine the ‘knock your socks off ‘ as Peter’s shackles fell off when the angel awakened him while in Herod’s prison.


We have all had some news we thought others would be excited to know about or maybe news that would not be so welcome.   What excites some is of no concern to others.  And then, there are those whose pendulums swing depending on what else they have on their minds.


Too many of us are like that with our SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST.   Holidays are the important times to attend church, many think.  Christmas, Easter or going with Mom on Mother’s Day are highly attended.  Yet, going to the lake, sleeping in or a round of golf seem to take precedent over worshiping our LORD at other times.


Get up and go to church and worship with other believers.   The more you know about GOD, the more you will want to know.   Then, find a Bible study group at your church or a home group.   You will find the only true GOD who can bring you peace and comfort and really knock your socks off.


Not getting your socks knocked off…maybe you’re not wearing any!


Today’s prayer:   “JESUS, MY SAVIOUR, I have been too passive and have taken YOU for granted in too many ways.   I want to feel the excitement of YOUR love for me as never before.  I will follow as YOU tell me.  Amen.”
