Acts 14:21-25

21 They preached the gospel in that city and won a large number of disciples. Then they returned to Lystra, Iconium and Antioch, 22 strengthening the disciples and encouraging them to remain true to the faith. “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said. 23 Paul and Barnabas appointed elders[a] for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, committed them to the Lord, in whom they had put their trust. 24 After going through Pisidia, they came into Pamphylia, 25 and when they had preached the word in Perga, they went down to Attalia.

One response to “Acts 14:21-25

  1. These converts trusted in the Lord, yet these apostles fasted and prayed over them to commit them to the Lord and to entrust their steadfastness to Him. Regeneration does not guarantee that we are delivered from the deception that could draw us from Christ. We have to commit every day to follow Him and elders, and the saints must shield us with faith and prayers lest we be led away.
