Acts 19:18-22

18 Many of those who believed now came and openly confessed what they had done. 19 A number who had practiced sorcery brought their scrolls together and burned them publicly. When they calculated the value of the scrolls, the total came to fifty thousand drachmas.[c] 20 In this way the word of the Lord spread widely and grew in power.

21 After all this had happened, Paul decided[d] to go to Jerusalem, passing through Macedonia and Achaia. “After I have been there,” he said, “I must visit Rome also.” 22 He sent two of his helpers, Timothy and Erastus, to Macedonia, while he stayed in the province of Asia a little longer.

One response to “Acts 19:18-22

  1. They didn’t confess simply to voice what their sin had been, they confessed and forsook. They burned their bridge back to their sin by destroying the articles of false worship. Even though they were valuable, they found truth and put aside error.

    I need to more completely forsake my sin. I need to destroy the paths that could lead me back to sin. I don’t need to confess the acts of my sin, but confess the condition of my iniquity and seek God’s change in me.
