PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Acts 19:32-41
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“Since these facts are undeniable, you ought to calm down and not do anything rash.” (Acts 19:36)
I like the reasoning of this non Jesus follower, we can learn from him.
What do we do when our professor is mocking religious beliefs?
What do we do when one of our children chooses not to believe?
What do we do when our government clamps down on religious freedom?
What do we do when the media presents our faith as foolish and comical?
What do we do when our new neighbours are of a different faith?
“You ought to calm down and not do anything rash.” (Acts 19:36)
If what we believe is true, then calm down and let the truth stand for itself.
Sometimes I find christians losing their cool when their faith is attacked.
The city clerk is convinced that his beliefs are undeniable.
Are we convinced that our beliefs are undeniable?
Even if we have doubts, don’t get worked up about it.
We are most likely to be foolish and comical when we are agitated and rash.
Jesus is Saviour and Lord, not you; relax and rest in him, he can defend himself!
Lord, help me to not let the devil make me agitated and rash, no matter what is happening. Help me to stay calm, like you, trusting that God has everything in hand!
