Today's reading: Acts 19:21-41

Paul's preaching in Ephesus was definitely having an impact on the community--people were being healed and many people were coming to a saving knowledge of Christ. But not everyone received the news of Jesus favorably. And in fact, some were quite hostile toward Paul's message. So as we reach Acts 19:21-41 a few angry people have riled up a sizeable crowd against Paul and those associated with him. Thankfully, the dangerous situation is dissipated when a city official steps up and interjects a voice of reason.

What did the incident in Acts 19:21-41 reveal about responses and/or types of situations we can expect to encounter as we spread the message of Christ? Was there anything specific that God impressed on your heart from this passage and why? Tami

I've always been impressed with Aristarchus, who willingly left Thessalonica em to join Paul's ministry tean, even after seeing the opposition and hardship he'd face.

I just shared this word with my daughter who is doing missionary work with young people in Germany.If you speak God's word to unbelievers he will provide protection and good advice to you even from the most unexpected persons. Trust him always.

God bless.
