We see this in ACTS 13-14. Everywhere that Paul and Barnabas went they were surrounded by opposition to the Gospel. In just two chapters, in three different locations we see the same reaction to the Gospel, many believe it and some oppose it. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is Good News that divides.
As believers in Christ, there are times when we’re going to feel surrounded on all sides. Opposed by family, friends, neighbors, teachers, politicians, media. As Christ’s ambassadors, we have been dropped in the middle of a lost world like paratroopers. We’re supposed to be surrounded. So, like the early church in the book of ACTS, let’s keep sharing the Gospel (Acts 14:7).
