Acts 13:49-52

Chapter Blog

49The word of the Lord spread through the whole region. 50But the Jews incited the God-fearing women of high standing and the leading men of the city. They stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region. 51So they shook the dust from their feet in protest against them and went to Iconium. 52And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.

One response to “Acts 13:49-52

  1. It was time to go when the women got stirred up against them. JK

    They obeyed God and gave the message. When it was rejected by some and they were kicked out, they moved on to obey God elsewhere. I think that we can act in the flesh when our pride is offended and get indignant in our faith. Not to God’s glory, but because our pride was wounded and we have a bone to pick.

    They shook the dust off their feet and moved on to God’s next mission for them.
