Today’s reading: Numbers 4:42-5:11

And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed. And the word of the Lord was published throughout all the region. But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts. But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium. And the disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.
Acts 13:48-52

Thoughts on the Book of Acts (113)
Many non-Jews in Antioch in Phrygia joyfully received the news that the message of salvation in Jesus Christ applied to them without any condition whatever. They praised God for it, and the message spread throughout the region.
Resistance increased on the part selfish, self-righteous Jews who considered themselves robbed of their privileges. But they could not frustrate God’s plan nor hinder anyone from laying hold on eternal life by faith.
Some of the antagonists managed to influence distinguished women who supported Judaism and also the prominent citizens of the town against Paul and Barnabas and expel them. Yet while such were filled with envy (v.45), the newly converted Christians in the city were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit. What a stark contrast!
On leaving the city, Paul and Barnabas shook off the dust off their feet as a warning to their enemies, following the commission Jesus had given the disciples (Luke 9:5). Their mission took them on to Iconium.

If the power to save was demonstrated in the life of anybody at all, it was in the life of Paul. In 1 Timothy 1:15...More

Yesterday we learnt it is not right for us to get angry with God or to take offence against Him, even if we experience the deferment of our hopes. The example of John the Baptist who earlier acknowledged Jesus as the Messiah, but later doubted Him because of his painful experience of incarceration is a warning...More
