As His Custom – As His Manner Was

 

As His Custom - As His Manner WasThe book of Acts gives the reader plenty of stories to dwell upon and use for edification or for suspense. Suspense if one is wondering if the Church would survive. Depending on ones level of understanding … it “ain’t” so easy to tell today.

In reading the Acts, plenty revelations arise to take note on. We’ll visit one in this setting.

Habits are also known as a custom or even a manner, and thus when we hear the phrase, “as his custom” or “as his manner was,” we can conclude this was a habit. A habit is something people do with or without any conscious thought.

As His Manner Was

In Acts chapter 17, we learn of what Paul’s manner or custom was … it resembled that of His Master and His God.

See Acts 17

2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,

Paul’s manner was to go into the Synagogue of the Jews, every Sabbath, and reason with them out of the scriptures. Paul did not reason with them of his own thoughts, but out of the scriptures.

In Acts chapter 26, Paul confirms what he was committed to reasoning with…

Acts 26

22 Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day, witnessing both to small and great, saying none other things than those which the prophets and Moses did say should come:

He spoke with all, great and small, saying nothing other the things written by the prophets and Moses, which they wrote concerning Jesus Christ.

As His Manner Was Like That of Jesus

Back to Act 17 and verse 2 – it sounds like Paul is copying the Lord Jesus. Here is what I mean:

Luke 4

15 And he taught in their synagogues, being glorified of all.

16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read.

Jesus taught in their synagogues, and Jesus went to the town He grew up in and as His manner was, He went in on the Sabbath Day (7th day of the week) and stood up to read.

Read What?As His Manner Was Like That of Jesus

Scriptures. The very next verse says He was given the book of the prophet Isaiah. This is a common theme of men and women of God.

They exhort, teach, and edify in the scriptures and today the testimony, and they certainly have the habit, custom, or manner of doing these things on the Sabbath Day.

Blessings of peace, joy, and salvation be upon you… in Jesus name.
