Acts 14 – Gospel in Life

Book of the Bible: Acts 14

The Gospel for the Pagan

The Gospel for the Pagan

In Acts chapter 14 when Paul and Barnabas bring the gospel to Lystra, and a lame man is restored to health, the crowds proclaim the pair Hermes and Zeus. How did Paul and Barnabas attempt to steer the crowd to understand not just who they were but who the true God was? Were the crowds truly wrong to believe that men could come visit them in the form of gods? The text and sermon teach us: love the needy, identify the idols, endure the hardness, and fulfill the longings.
