徒 Acts 16:6-10
6 圣灵既然禁止他们在亚西亚传道，他们就走遍弗吕家、加拉太地区。 7 他们来到每西亚边境，想要去庇推尼，耶稣的灵也不许。 8 他们经过每西亚，下到特罗亚。 9 夜间有一个异象向保罗显现：有一个马其顿人站着求他说：“请你到马其顿来，帮助我们！” 10 保罗见了这异象，我们就认定是上帝呼召我们去传福音给他们，于是立刻设法前往马其顿。
6 Paul and his companions traveled throughout the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been kept by the Holy Spirit from preaching the word in the province of Asia. 7 When they came to the border of Mysia, they tried to enter Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus would not allow them to. 8 So they passed by Mysia and went down to Troas. 9 During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” 10 After Paul had seen the vision, we got ready at once to leave for Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.
Where do we get an aptness to be taught or a mind to obey but from his Spirit? So it is certainly not by merit that some people are preferred before others; everyone is equally hostile to faith by nature. Therefore, there is nothing better than to leave God the freedom and power to give or withhold his grace as he pleases.
