How people respond to the gospel (Acts 17)

The response of the Atheniens to Paul’s message on Mars Hill is interesting to me. Paul gave a marvelous presentation on who God is and was starting to give the message of the gospel when he was forced to stop.

Why? Because there were people who, the moment they heard him talking about resurrection, laughed him off. They laughed off someone who could explain God and the gospel probably better than anyone else in church history.

And yet, there were others who believed.

That’s what we need to remember as we share the gospel. We may give a perfect gospel presentation, and some people will still laugh us off.

But there will be others who believe.

So don’t give up. Just do what Jesus has ordered us to do. Preach the gospel. And leave the results to him.
