I READ: Acts 17:22-34, Isaiah 51:7                                                              

When we take that first step to witness and evangelize, do not be afraid of different responses from people.  There may be those who can immediately accept, but there will be others who refuse and even mock us.  Let us keep sowing because that is our part.  God’s part is changing people’s hearts. We must believe that the seeds of the Word we sow will someday grow.  Maybe not today they receive it, but when they are in trouble they will remember every word we said.  Today we learn from Paul.  One time Paul preached to Athenians.  Various responses he received, some mocked and rejected the Gospel, but there were also those who believed.  For those who rejected the Gospel, Paul left them and did not feel rejected, he believed that he had sown seeds and those seeds will someday grow.

I DECLARE: Isaiah 51:7 – Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, You people in whose heart is My law. Do not fear the reproach of men, Nor be afraid of their insults.

I DO:  What action will I take today after meditating the Word of God?

I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit.
