Acts 13:1-12

The local church in Antioch, in Acts 13, was seeking the face of God and asking His direction. The preachers and teachers were looking for God-called followers to be sent out to new areas. Antioch was the launching pad for reaching the Gentiles with the gospel.

The devil isn’t omniscient, but he sensed that those who would “turn the world upside down” were about to be unleashed. He knew they were full of the Holy Spirit and sent by the Spirit. The proconsul Serguis Paulus was hungering for truth and ripe to hear what Paul and Barnabas had to share. Elymas, the sorcerer and a pawn of the devil, tried to hinder God’s messengers with deceit and trickery. Fortunately, Paul who had never heard the term “political correctness”, rebuked Elymas, leaving him blind as a consequence of his sinfulness.

This makes me ask if we, the local church, are as serious about God’s leading in our lives? Do we gather to fast and pray, waiting on God until He intervenes? How much different would our churches be, if right now we started doing what the early church practiced?
