Rhoda is a very minor character in the Book of Acts. She was a young servant girl who allowed her emotions to get the best of her. Many Christians today are often led by how they might feel, their emotions, rather than by what they believe. Emotions and feelings are good and God-pleasing if they are prompted by the facts or truths that we believe. Is it possible to truly believe that Jesus gave his life for us and not feel anything?
New Testament Lesson: Acts 12:6-17 (The Emotions of a Young Girl)
Gospel Lesson: Luke 10:38-42 (Martha Gets “Bent out of Shape”)
