In those days, some Jews from Antioch and Iconium arrived and won over the crowds. They stoned Paul and dragged him out of the city, supposing that he was dead. But when the disciples gathered around him, he got up and entered the city. On the following day he left with Barnabas for Derbe. Acts_14:19-28
Don’t you just love this! They stoned him to (apparent) death, but he got up and went into the city . . . Isn’t God awesome! He was not quite done with Paul yet!
Jesus said to his disciples: “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.” Jn_14:27-31a
Do not fear, beloved! God is not quite done with us either! Take the peace of Christ into your hearts, for nothing ‘they’ can do to us can take that peace away – it belongs to God the Almighty!
