Acts 14 Now at Iconium they entered together into the Jewish synagogue and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed...
think about it.
What response did Paul get in Iconium (14:1-7)? What happened in Lystra (14:8-18)? How did Paul and Barnabas handle being treated like gods (14:11-18)? What do you learn from them about handling misunderstandings and opposition? What was Paul's ministry as he returned to these communities (14:21-25)? How can you encourage believers you know today?
For a good reminder of what we can expect when we're serving the Lord, all we need to do is read Acts 14. Paul and Barnabas were definitely not accustomed to the term "easy street." Yet, they pressed on, even revisiting many of the places where they had been driven out because of opposition and persecution.
So what did you learn from Paul and Barnabas' examples and actions here in Acts 14? What do verses 21-23 show us about the importance of discipleship? Tami W.
