We Should Walk in Them

Click here for the audio version

Pamphylia was a province of Southern Asia Minor. To its west was Lycia, and to its east, Cilicia. Its northern neighbor was Pisidia, and to the south was the Mediterranean coast. Pamphylia is mentioned less than a half dozen times in Scripture, and the only city of the province ever mentioned at all is Perga. We might have had no remembrance of the place at all were it not for what happened there, and what did not. What did happen was the preaching of the Gospel by the missionary company of Paul, Barnabas, and John Mark. What did not happen was John Mark’s continuance with the company, for he left them to return to Jerusalem. Similarly, it is not who we are nor where we are that determines the spiritual quality of our lives. That quality is determined by what we allow God to do with us, and what we disallow Satan from doing. At Ephesians Two, Paul said we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God ordained that we should walk in them.
