This morning, we return to an earlier theme in the book of Acts, seeing a reminder of the hatred the world has for Christ and Christians. We’ll look at two examples:
We’ll also see how Paul handles himself during the persecution. He doesn’t become fearful, but draws upon God-given wisdom to steer a straight course to honor God and to preserve his life. In doing this, we not only see the Lord protect Paul’s life again, we see how He does so by helping Paul to be as shrewd as a serpent and harmless and innocent as a dove. We apply this to our own circumstances as we seek to live for Christ in a fallen world.
