'That night Paul had a vision: A man from Macedonia in northern Greece was standing there, pleading with him, "Come over to Macedonia and help us!"' – Acts 16:Nine
Acts 16:Nine – The Gospel comes to Europe
After a long journey of trying to discern where the Spirit was leading them next, Paul receives a vision from God that will begin the next chapter of his ministry. The account of Acts 16 verse nine marks the significant point in Paul’s journey at which he was to be called to bring the gospel from Asia in to Europe. Paul’s response to this encounter was immediate – understanding that God had called them to preach the gospel there he gathered his family on mission and left straightaway.
The church in Europe represents the legacy of this decision.
But what if the work God began through Paul in Europe isn’t finished yet?
And what would it look like for every disciple to play a role in fulfilling this part of the great commission?
Paul’s journey of faith and obedience inspires us to “go” in turn, doing our part in empowering leaders, churches and networks across Europe to rediscover discipleship and release missional leaders, who will transform Europe with the gospel.
