The Call - Paul's Second Missionary Journey

We pick up the story of Paul, who has a falling out with Barnabas, heads out to journey from Antioch and visits churches from his first missionary journey. Paul faces places that rejected him in order to encourage the new churches. These communities become the focus of his letter to the region of Galatia. Paul’s journey becomes one of suffering and love. He also goes to places he has never been before. Discerning God’s will is often a challenge to understand. We may think a roadblock is a message from God, a thought, a feeling and a sense of a call can get blocked. However, God’s vision for our lives is not simply about ease, it is about what is right. Where is God calling you? What are the roadblocks? Let’s follow God to the places we can be used by God to make an eternal difference.

Acts 16:6-10

Acts 16:6-10

And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia. And when they had come up to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them. So, passing by Mysia, they went down to Troas. And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 And when Paul had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them. (ESV)
