As we continue to follow Paul and Barnabas on their first missionary journey, we come to a city called Lystra. What is fascinating about this portion of Scripture is to see how Satan continues to try to oppose God's work, but instead of using persecution, as he has in other cities, this time he attempts to use pride.
After a great miracle, the people of Lystra try to worship Paul and Barnabas as gods. They quickly shut it down and share the gospel of the "Living God" with the people of the city.
Discover how Paul and Barnabas stayed focused by staying on mission with what God had called them to do. This is the 36th sermon in the Book of Acts.

In Acts 13, Luke gives us the first recorded sermon by Paul. It is fascinating how Paul presents the Gospel and what is even more fascinating, is how people responded to the Gospel.
As we break down this lengthy passage of Scripture, we find that people today respond in the same way, because neither the Gospel nor people's nature change throughout time. Listen carefully to God's Word and examine your own heart to see if you have responded to the Gospel appropriately in saving faith.

How do you know when the Holy Spirit is speaking to you? According to Acts 13:1-3, the Holy Spirit set apart Paul and Barnabas. In Pt. 1 of On Mission, Pastor Chad point out how the Church of Antioch was engaged in Prayer, Fasting and Worshping the Lord. Because they had these priorities right, they heard the Holy Spirit speak.
Many believers are frustrated because they rarely sense the Holy Spirit speaking in their lives. When Christians begin to pray, fast and worship the Lord in a right way, then the Holy Spirit will speak into our lives.
