The Daily Scroll – Mockers!

There are two things that really get to me, someone hanging up the phone on me, and being mocked. I’ll guess that you don’t like it either. It happens to all of us at one time or another, but being mocked for sharing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus? That stings, especially when you know that the mocker is hurting themself. The Bible tells of a time when the Apostle Paul was ridiculed and mocked by his Jewish brothers for sharing the Gospel. Here was Pauls response;

“Brothers, listen! We are here to proclaim that through this man Jesus there is forgiveness for your sins. Everyone who believes in him is made right in God’s sight— Be careful! Don’t let the prophets’ words apply to you. For they said, Look you mockers, be amazed and die! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.” (Acts 13:38-41)

So pity the mockers in your life for they are just hurting themselves. Boldly proclaim the Gospel of Christ to a lost and dying world. – gene
