Acts 19:8-12

Paul entered the synagogue and spoke boldly there for three months, arguing persuasively about the kingdom of God. But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way. So Paul left them. He took the disciples with him and had discussions daily in the lecture hall of Tyrannus. 10 This went on for two years, so that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord.

11 God did extraordinary miracles through Paul, 12 so that even handkerchiefs and aprons that had touched him were taken to the sick, and their illnesses were cured and the evil spirits left them.

One response to “Acts 19:8-12

  1. Paul was discipling and continuing to evangelize. But when people began to publicly malign Christ and His salvation, Paul left the synagogue and went to focus on discipleship. Christ uses me in the earth, but He does not need me. I pick up crosses and argue and debate for my own satisfaction and glory.

    I need to be aware of those I am to disciple and looking out for their welfare and growth. I have to serve His kingdom and not my own pride and sense of accomplishment.
