Then again, some will

Re:Verse reading–Acts 23:11; 25:12; 28:16-31 (day two) 

Some were being persuaded by the things spoken, but others would not believe. 28:24

Here is Paul, arguably the greatest evangelist of the early church, and there were some who just wouldn’t buy what he was selling. If ever there were a thoroughly converted man convinced of his duty to spread the gospel, it was Paul. And yet some didn’t believe. Do you think it frustrated him? Do you think it altered his approach or his message? Probably not. Paul understood his role. He knew that there would be those who would reject this truth, but his part was to spread the Word without apology. Why do we lack that kind of conviction? Why are we so easily swayed from our task when things don’t go as we plan. Is our call from God? Do you know your assignment? Get to it. Finish the race. Keep true to the message. Some will not believe, but then again, some will.

One thought on “Then again, some will”

  1. God and God’s truth will always prevail! Any truths will prevail. Any changes will take time to take roots!

    Some people are ready for change and can get on board without a second thought; some are undecided; some are not comfortable with uncertainties. There will be some who will resist to any changes, even though the change may benefit them. Resistance to change is real and it can slow down the speed of change.

    I am not surprised no matter how great Paul was in telling God’s truth, some people would not “buy what he was selling”! It is a normal reaction of human beings. The truths will always prevail. God’s truths will always be strong and will prevail. The job of a change agent requires patience and moving forward with the change agenda until the mission is accomplished. The job of a missionary to spread the gospel will continue until Jesus returns!

    God’s truth will prevail. More and more people will turn to God for peace, joy, happiness and eternity. We will see and celebrate that day! I am convinced!
