Every minister of the Gospel that I’ve known who bears fruit has encountered opposition. I have encountered it. And if you’re committed to the unapologetic preaching of the Word of God for the rest of your life, opposition is coming. “Through many tribulations we enter the kingdom of God” (Acts 14:22).
But opposition is just one part of a ministry pattern we find repeatedly in Scripture—a pattern that I wish someone had shared with me in my early days in ministry. Watch below, and let nothing dissuade you in your passionate commitment to be faithful to the Gospel, until Christ returns or calls us home. This is a clip that leads into a study of Acts 13-14, that I gave at an Acts 29 Bootcamp we were privileged to host. Click here to watch the full sermon that shows the same pattern in some of the cities where Paul took the Gospel.
