Reading along with us in Acts? Here’s today’s reading:

Acts 14 (ESV)

Now at Iconium they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed. But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers. So they remained for a long time, speaking boldly for the Lord, who bore witness to the word of his grace, granting signs and wonders to be done by their hands. But the people of the city were divided; some sided with the Jews and some with the apostles. When an attempt was made by both Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to mistreat them and to stone them, they learned of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding country, and there they continued to preach the gospel......Continue Reading

We need to be prepared for how the kingdom of darkness will use people to oppose us. And the drastic response is no better expressed than here in Lystra. P and B go from being declared gods because of a healing that God allows and yet a few days later they are stoning him. And the amazing thing? After Paul leaves and goes to Derbe to preach the gospel there, he goes back to Lystra…..Paul, do you remember you were stoned there……and actually rereading verse 20, he went bak into the city right after being stoned. WOW……imagine if every or even a tenth of believers were that sold out???
