As we pick up with Paul in Pisidian Antioch during his first missionary journey, we find Paul doing exactly what he has been doing since the time of his conversion; he is preaching the gospel. As became his practice, in each city he visited, he went to the Jews first in the synagogue. In fact, it was the fact that he was already doing the work of an evangelist and missionary which allowed him to be set apart by the Holy Spirit for this journey to take the Gospel to the Gentiles in Asia.
Now in Pisidian Antioch, he again preaches the Gospel. And as he does so, his method becomes a model for us to follow, for we see that in his preaching, Paul:
Preaches nothing new; his message is the same message he, and the other apostles have preached.
Paul appeals to Scripture, the Old Testament, throughout his sermon, and not to human opinion or philosophies
He ends his message with a call to faith, as well as a warning for those who will not believe.
We also see, that just as Paul was called to preach the Gospel, we are called to the same mission. Therefore, let us preach the Gospel.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May the Lord bless you through the teaching of His Holy Word.
