Do Your Part

Acts 13:16-52

Ever heard the saying "You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink"? Well I was raised around horses, and that statement is so true. It also gives us a good picture of what's happening in Acts 13:16-52. Paul and Barnabas are teaching the Jews in Pisidia but the Jewish leaders stir up the crowds against them. Paul and Barnabas' response? They tell the Jews "It was necessary that the word of God be spoken first to you. Since you thrust it aside and judge yourselves unworthy of eternal life, behold, we are turning to the Gentiles" (vs. 46). They then left, shaking off the dust from their feet against them, went to Iconium, and were filled with joy and the Holy Spirit (vs. 51).

You see, we can't make someone believe, but it's still our responsibility to tell others about Jesus and salvation, and Paul and Barnabas knew that.

So what did Acts 13:16-52 show you about the process of sharing and telling others about Christ? What can we do to make sure we're doing our part?
