Paul — Journey #1 (Cyprus, Antioch of Pisidia) — The church at Antioch sends missionaries.

Today’s Readings:
Reading 1: Acts 13
Reading 2: Matthew 28:18-20
Reading 3: Acts 1:8

God sends Paul and Barnabas out from the church in Antioch. First they go to the Jews (although they include God-fearing Gentiles in their preaching), then later they are rejected again by some of the Jews, and so they focus entirely on the non-Jewish audience from then on.

Notice the power of God at work, and also the opposition to God’s working. Consider the outcome of such power-battles, and be encouraged in your daily life to stand up for Jesus and see God vindicate your stand.

Have a great day!

Mark.
