This passage begins to illustrate a pattern for ministry.

1.  Communication - v.5 - "preached the Word"

2.  Opposition - v.6 - "false prophet"

3.  Perseverance - v.9 - "filled with the Holy Ghost"

4.  Fruit - v.12 - "believed"

Send out missionaries!  Stay faithful in the proclamation of the Word!  Endure hardness!  Reap reward!

Walk with the Lord and stay faithful in the ministry!!!
