Paul (#10): Greatly Distressed – September 25, 2011

“Paul (#10): Greatly Distressed”
Text: Acts 17:16-34
The phrase “greatly distressed” is used quite a few times in scripture–often indicating a distress at sin, idolatry, or a situation that seemed beyond hope.  And yet, sometimes we get “greatly distressed” about things that probably shouldn’t receive that much of our attention.  Even as Paul is “greatly distressed” at the idols on Mars Hills, we ought to be “greatly distressed” about sin in our own lives and brokenness in the world around us.
