Bob Marley, St. Paul, You…and Who Else?

July 8, 2019

Stacy Hulm recently wrote this and graciously says it’s ok to share this with you —-

As Paul was preaching the gospel some unbelieving Jews turned the crowds against him, They stoned him, carried him out of the city thinking he was dead. But notice what happened when the Believers gathered around him:

(Acts 14; 19, 20) “They stoned Paul and dragged him out of town, thinking he was dead. But as the believers gathered around him, he got up and went back into the town.”

HE GOT UP!!! This is the power of being among faith-filled believers. Surround yourself with those who speak life into you! Everyone else may leave you for dead, but your fellow believers will help you to get up again!

In the words of Bob Marley, “Get up, stand up!”

And as a follower of the resurrected Christ Jesus, you have even more reason.

 

Two Questions

Who’s surrounding you with their life-giving  presence?

For whom are you doing that?

 

Two Action Steps  

Contact one of more of those believers (who have) gathered around you and thank them today.

Reach out to someone today who’s been given up on by others, someone who could benefit from your own version of “Get up, stand up!”
