July 14, 2021 – Wednesday Acts 18:9    NIV 9 One night the Lord spoke to Paul in a vision: “Do not be afraid; keep on speaking, do not be silent. Comment  One thing that jumps out is that Paul was afraid, otherwise there would be no need for God to speak to him in a vision telling him not to be afraid. Almost all the versions here say Do not be afraid, although a few say Do not fear which is basically…
