Before we get into this we have to understand that Paul went everywhere.
“So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, deported unto Seleucia; on from thence they sailed to Cyprus.” Acts 13:4
In Paphos they came upon a false prophet and Saul/Paul blinded him for his wickedness.
They then went to Perga, then they left Perga to go to Antioch, here he gave them a run down of the old testament.
Acts 13:52 “And the disciples were filled with joy and the Holy Ghost.”
I love this because it means that with the Holy Ghost comes Joy! With God is Joy!
Then they went to Iconium, here it says they spoke to a great multitude in the synagogue. Here there was also an uprising and they had to flea to Lystra and Derbe and they preached the gospel there.
“And there came tither certain Jews from Antioch and Iconium, who persuaded the people, and stoned Paul, drew him out of the city, supposing he had been dead. Howbeit, as the disciples stood around him, he rose up, and came into the city: and the next day he departed with Barnabas to Derbe.” Acts 14:19-20
Well! Things aren’t looking very good for Paul are they? But his work wasn’t done. They traveled about preaching and setting up churches.
When Paul spoke he spoke of love and serving Jesus. He had met God at a very hard time in his life. Though his life was very hard and he died before his time, there was one constant in his life, that God was good and true and that He changed his life so much that he changed his name from Saul to Paul. Now he is known by millions around the world.
