Shook the Dust from Their Feet
Paul and Barnabas are preaching fearlessly to large crowds, almost the entire city! However, the disciples are expelled after they note that the Jews have rejected the Word of God. Paul and Barnabas “shook the dust from their feet” and left filled with joy and the Holy Spirit. Are you able to trust in the Lord and depart with a light heart when your message is rejected? Today’s Readings: Acts 13:44–52; Psalm 98:1, 2–3, 3–4; John 14:7–14.
