Sermon Text: Acts 13:4-52

Summary: First Missionary Journey of Paul, with Barnabas

In Cyprus a magician hindering the spread of the Gospel is blinded by God. In Pisidia Antioch many Jews become Christians on one Sabbath, but on the next Sabbath some jealous Jews speak against Paul and Barnabas as they try to proclaim the Gospel. So they declare that they were going to the Gentiles, and a number of Gentiles believed in Jesus. When the Jews stirred up persecution against Paul and Barnabas and drove them out of their district, they shook off the dust from their feet and went to preach in Iconium. 


Study Questions:

1. What did God accomplish when He filled Paul with The Holy Spirit and through him struck Elymas the magician blind (see verses 6-12)? 

2. When Paul and Barnabas proclaimed Christ to the Jews, they begged to hear more (see verse 42). Are you telling people about Jesus? Are they begging to hear more, perhaps in ways that are not obvious? How will you respond?

3. When Paul and Barnabas again proclaimed Christ to the Jews, some became jealous and persecuted Paul and Barnabas, driving them out of their area, but they went to another place to share Christ with others (see verses 44-51). People are sometimes very jealous for their own beliefs, their own gods that they have set up, because they want the attention and they want to be in control. When you witness for Jesus and people speak out against Him and persecute you as they persecute Him, what will you do? What if they turn you off and in a sense drive you away? 

4. The Holy Spirit fills us all when we believe in Christ, and He continually fills us, filling us with joy (see verse 52). Are you living like someone who is always being filled with The Holy Spirit? Even in problems and persecution, are you continually filled with the joy of The Lord which is your strength (see Nehemiah 9:9-12)?
