Today’s devotion was written by Sarah McLane.
Barnabas and Saul were sent on mission.
Like Pastor Vance mentioned in his recent sermon – Saul was uniquely qualified speaking both Greek and Aramaic to reach varied groups.
First they landed and preached in the Jewish meeting places. Then they traveled the length of the island and found a Roman pro-counsel who wished to hear their message.
Our main focus today is the pro-counsel’s advisor or wizard who wanted to prevent Barnabas and Saul from sharing with Paulus. Interesting that Saul calls on the Holy Spirit to invoke blindness on the wizard just as he had been blinded at his conversion earlier. Nothing to miss here. Paulus was converted and full of enthusiasm for the Word.
Where are you called to share The Message?
What is holding you back?
How is the Holy Spirit preparing a way before you?
What are your thoughts, comments, questions?
