Loyal to Christ (Acts 16:6-15)


As we continue to look at our baptismal vows against the backdrop of the book of Acts, we come to this vow: Will you be loyal to Christ through the local church and do all in your power to strengthen its ministries?  Today's scripture contains the account of Paul and Silas and how they were prohibited by the Holy Spirit from going into areas where they thought were most in need of the Gospel.  Instead, the Spirit led them to Philipi, a Roman colony with only a small Jewish population.  And sometimes when we think we are doing what God is calling us to do, God stands in the way and says "no."  At times like this, it's difficult to be obedient and not second-guess God.  But we must be loyal to Christ in all we do.
