The closing verses of Acts describe some who believed the story of Jesus and some who did not. As the divided crowd was dispersing, Paul quoted to them a passage from the prophet Isaiah 6:9-10. Read these verses and then ask yourself the following question: Has my heart become “fat and unresponsive” to the Word of God? Jesus also quoted this very same passage (Matthew 13:14-15) when he explained why the religious leaders would not hear his message. Is you life best described as a monument or a movement? May our lives be described as a people moving as the Spirit leads, not as stiff-necked, unmoving children.
