Acts 14:5-7
When an attempt was made by both Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to mistreat them and to stone them, they learned of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding country and there they continued to preach the gospel. (ESV)
Something very powerful was driving the apostles. Everyone was set to kill them, yet they didn't conclude thereby that preaching the gospel was a bad idea. They only found other audiences who might receive the News of Jesus well.
This in itself reminds us that there is something bigger than our life, and earthly comfort. It is Jesus, who is Life, and Eternal Confort.
Is it possible that in the comforts of our living and relative peace, we have settled for lesser idols, and easily forget the Ultimate Treasure in Christ? Would it be worth sharing the Treasure of His Gospel, even if it means less peace and comfort?
