This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.

In Acts 13:33 Paul related this to when Jesus _______________ from the dead.
By the way, when Paul quotes it comes from the Second Psalm, which is the only numbered reference in the New Testament to an Old Testament passage.
Hebrews 1:5 and 5:5 contain the same quotation.
The rebellious nations of verse one become the ________________ of the Son!

Rejoice with _____________________
_______________ the Son
