Read it! Acts 16
During the night Paul had a vision
of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him,
“Come over to Macedonia and help us.” After Paul had seen the vision,
we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia,
concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.
Think it through
Acts 16 is a study of where Paul goes… and doesn’t go. He goes to Derbe and Lystra, Phrygia and Galatia, but the Holy Spirit kept him out of Asia. His group tries to enter Bithynia but “the Spirit of Jesus wouldn’t allow them to.” (I would love to know more about that! What was that like, to be blocked by the Spirit of Jesus?) Paul doesn’t leave a jail cell when released by an earthquake, nor does he leave the jailer’s home when released by the magistrates. But the last words of Acts 16 are, “Then they left”!
