We see in our reading dealing with both the Jews and the pagan Gentiles created an environment that was dangerous for one to proclaim the gospel! Yet the charge has always been for us to stand and proclaim Christ no matter the cost!!! What took place at Lystra leaves a lot of questions that causes one to wonder! Paul’s physical condition, because Luke tells us they thought he was dead and yet he gets up and walks back to town. Did Paul’s rising constitute some form of miracle? Was the deliverance from the angry Lycaonians and Paul’s reentry to the city a miracle in itself? Questions, questions! Yet we see Paul’s love for the Lord put on full display for even after they stoned him and left for dead, he did not stop proclaiming the gospel!
