This Sunday, October 23rd, we will be continuing our series in the book of Acts. Sometime this week take a few moments to read Acts 14:1-20.
Last week we saw that Paul began his sermon to the Jews in Pisidian Antioch with a review of the Old Testament promises and demonstrations of God’s faithfulness. In chapter 14, Paul took a different approach. Why? It’s because Paul had a different audience. When Paul talked to the Jews he related the gospel to the Jewish promise of a Messiah. When he talked to Gentiles, that approach would have been foolish, as the Gentiles wouldn’t have known what he was talking about. So Paul spoke to this audience from a more philosophical viewpoint.
This is a lesson for all of us. Whenever we share the faith with someone else we need to begin where they are. “I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.” 1 Corinthians 9:22
See you in church!
