Acts: 13:44-48 King James Version (KJV)  44 And the next sabbath day came almost the whole city together to hear the word of God. 45 But when the Jews saw the multitudes, they were filled with envy, and spake against those things which were spoken by Paul, contradicting and blaspheming. 46 Then Paul and Barnabas waxed bold, and said, It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so hath the Lord commanded us, saying, I have set thee to be a light of the Gentiles, that thou shouldest be for salvation unto the ends of the earth. 48 And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord: and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed.

In our scripture text, we see Paul and Barnabas brought the good news to the Jews 1st and they did not believe. The Lord gave a way for the people who are not Jews, a chance to be saved, a chance to have remissions of sins, a chance to have power to overcome.  The Jews refused and the Gentiles accepted.

John 3:16 (KJV) 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Christ died on the cross so that all men might be saved. Everyone has an option. The question is who is ready to say “yes” to Christ and begin to follow Him.

Blessings!
