Speak the Truth in Love

44 On the next Sabbath almost the whole city came together to hear the word of God. 45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy; and contradicting and blaspheming, they opposed the things spoken by Paul. 46 Then Paul and Barnabas grew bold and said, “It was necessary that the word of God should be spoken to you first; but since you reject it, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so the Lord has commanded us:
‘I have set you as a light to the Gentiles,
That you should be for salvation to the ends of the earth.’ ”
48 Now when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad and glorified the word of the Lord. And as many as had been appointed to eternal life believed.
49 And the word of the Lord was being spread throughout all the region. 50 But the Jews stirred up the devout and prominent women and the chief men of the city, raised up persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them from their region. 51 But they shook off the dust from their feet against them, and came to Iconium. 52 And the disciples were filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.

Acts 13:44-52 NKJV

You can sense that something is wrong when people come with envy, contradictions and blasphemies. When people do not want to hear the truth of the word of God and they oppose everything that scripture says, that is when you know that you have tried your best to speak the truth in love to them. If they reject the message, it is not you that they are rejecting.
We are to just wipe the dust off of our feet and move on to the next person. We have to let the Holy Spirit lead and guide us and believe that He will do His work as only He can. We can walk away with joy and be filled with the Holy Spirit just as the early disciples were.

Pray with me please.

Father God,
How wonderful it is to be able to spend time in Your presence. You supply our every need. You were there from the beginning. You never change. You hold the whole world in Your hands. You spoke the word and everything in our world just came into existence. You go beyond time and space. Who can limit You? Who knows Your complete power and strength? Noone. You are the God who lives in eternity. You are holy. We thank You for the mighty things that You have done in our lives. We ask that You would do even more. Help us to love the unlovable and to reach the unreachable with Your great love. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
