Acts 22: Go: I will send you far away to the Gentiles

17 “When I returned to Jerusalem and was praying at the temple, I fell into a trance 18 and saw the Lord speaking to me. ‘Quick!’ he said. ‘Leave Jerusalem immediately, because the people here will not accept your testimony about me.‘ 19 ” ‘Lord,’ I replied, ‘these people know that I went from one synagogue to another to imprison and beat those who believe in you. 20 And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.’

21 “Then the Lord said to me, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.'”

Lord himself has accepted the Gentiles.  He has accepted all human beings.

But, some people think that only the entity they belong to (Jews, nation, power elites etc.) is special and the rest of other humans  are beneath them.  Do not struggle with people who reject the gospel.  Trust in God who will let us know when to stay and when to move.

Paul was challenged, persecuted and rejected by his own people and church leaders.  Let’s remember that and not to be discouraged if it happens to me.
