ACTS | False Idols & Mission

Acts 14:1-23 | False Idols & the Mission | May 10, 2015

As Paul and Barnabas continue on their first missionary journey through Asia Minor, the Holy Spirit leads them through drastically differing circumstances.  From whole cities worshipping them as gods to fleeing cities as a result of death threats, to attempted murder; all as results of faithfully engaging in the mission God had given them.  In Acts 14 Paul and Barnabas are faced with the reality of the human heart making, as Timothy Keller states, “good things into ultimate things.”  We can learn a thing or two about our own hearts as we watch how Paul and Barnabas respond to idolatry.
