Paul, Silas and Timothy continue the second missionary journey, and we see the Spirit actively guiding them, shutting up their path in some ways before opening a door of opportunity in Macedonia. We note that the men moved forward on the basis of the general command to make the Gospel known, and that it was as they were obedient in this way that the Spirit’s guidance was given to them. In the same way, we must be earnestly seeking to do the Lord’s work if we would know His guidance. We examine several examples of this guidance from the text, and apply it to our lives.
