Sermon Series from Acts: Transformed

Transformed: Learning to Endure!

Acts 14:1-7

 1  In Iconium they entered the Jewish synagogue, as usual, and spoke in such a way that a great number of both Jews and Greeks believed. 2  But the unbelieving Jews stirred up the Gentiles and poisoned their minds against the brothers. 3  So they stayed there a long time and spoke boldly for the Lord, who testified to the message of his grace by enabling them to do signs and wonders. 4  But the people of the city were divided, some siding with the Jews and others with the apostles. 5  When an attempt was made by both the Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to mistreat and stone them, 6  they found out about it and fled to the Lycaonian towns of Lystra and Derbe and to the surrounding countryside. 7  There they continued preaching the gospel.
