Committed to teaching and obeying the word of God

Opposition

In our continued study of Acts 13, we read on about Paul and Barnabas going into Cyprus, and their encounter with the Proconsul, Sergius Paulus, and  Elymas (or Bar-Jesus), who was with the Proconsul. In their encounter with these two men, we see Elymas trying to turn Sergius from the faith followed by Paul’s rebuke. Learning from this encounter, we can also come to see that there are many people out their who may be an “Elymas” to us and try to steer us from the truth. But the teaching of the Lord holds us firm in His hands, and we see the evidence of this in the faith the Proconsul received.
