Search The Scriptures — Study 31 — Acts 16: 6-15

Study 31 From The Book of Acts Is: Acts 16:6-15

A new period begins here, recording Paul’s greatest missionary effort and achievement: the evangelization of three important Roman provinces—Macedonia, Achaia and Asia.

  1. Verses 6-10.  By what various means was Paul guided at this time? Trace on a map how remarkable the guidance was.  What indication is there from this that God does not always guide us in the way we might expect?
  2. Verses 11-15.  The gospel comes to Europe.  What evidence is there (a) that Luke, the author of Acts, joined Paul at this time; (b) that the work began in a small way (with verse 13, cf. 13:14-16; 14: 1, 2, and Zc. 4:10a), and (c) that Lydia was truly born again of the Holy Spirit? Do you ever try to organize great work for God, rather than let God start a lasting work in a small way?
