Also, many of those who had practiced magic brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted up the value of them, and it totaled fifty thousand pieces of silver. Acts 19.19

God’s mission results are phenomenal, because those who witness or learn about such realizations understand the good, pleasant and perfect will of the Lord (Romans 12:2).  We feel great accomplishment as we are used to redeem somebody from sin.  When we see this person serving the Almighty in dignity, we rejoice for having done this good to her.  The new life with Jesus is incomparably better than the previous with no salvation. 

At Ephesus, God used Paul the Apostle in such a way that many accepted the Gospel publicly and confessed their deeds to the Lord.  Where there is repentance people no longer want to live in sin and falling into temptation.  Then they take pleasure in witnessing what God has done for them, redeeming them from error.  To live in Christ is to be delivered from all evil and to be truly happy. 

In those days, many that practiced magic and sorcery took their books and burned them in the public square.  It is rewarding to see the reaction of people who were under the command of the forces of darkness to reach liberation through the Word.  In gratitude they confessed salvation in Christ and interceded so that other individuals like them would also be converted.  This way they took their first steps to freedom!

It is not possible for somebody to be genuinely saved and remain in sin.  As a new creature, the Christian takes satisfaction in recounting the wonders of God, as they are completely transformed in the light of the Lord (Matthew 5:14). Without the guilt and torment of the condemnation (Romans 8:1) nothing more righteous and better than to enjoy.  However those that experience only a little divine love continue under oppression and for this reason speak little of Jesus.

Unfortunately, we know some that have fallen back into perdition.  One must ask this person if this was worth it, because to live with your conscience accusing you night and day must not be at all easy.  We must exhort those who have no appreciation for their own future in eternity and pray that they may wake up.  If necessary spend all your time to intercede for such a life!

If those books had been sold, the amount received would be very high.  However, the benefit of the Gospel is much larger than the loss those people would suffer, now and forever, if they had not been converted.  Those who tasted the love of Christ were delivered from spiritual death.  So if necessary do not fear dying, for your greatest goal is that the Truth reaches the lost. 

The transformation performed by the Lord on those who surrender to Him is seen without much effort.  Never desire to return to the time of error.  Those who drink of the water given by Jesus never again feel thirst and with all their might fight for others to experience the same grace of God as well.

In Christ, with Love,
