Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions

Acts chapter 14 v 24-28:


V24:  They return then through Pisidia and Pamphilia. The encouragement of the believers in Antioch must actually have taken place at this stage, though summed up with the other churches in the previous verses.

V25-26:  They preach in Perga, though nothing is recorded of the outcome of their ministry there, then take ship from the port of Attalia and sail back to their sending church, Antioch in Syria.They are sure they have completed the work they have been set apart for at this stage, according to God’s will, and by His enabling grace alone.

V27:  They give a full report back to their sending church – reminding us that missionaries are answerable to the church they are sent by. If even Paul knew this was so, clearly it should be a lasting principle in Christian service. One man has said ” the NT knows nothing of “lone ranger missionaries”. They emphasise in their report the reality of God’s grace to the Gentiles, and their salvation through faith in Christ.

V28:  After this, Paul and Barnabas stay in Antioch for an unspecified length of time, settling back into their home church, and perhaps resuming their ministries there.
