Wesley's Notes for Acts 16:10


16:10 We sought to go into Macedonia - This is the first place in which St. Luke intimates his attendance on the apostle. And here he does it only in an oblique manner. Nor does he throughout the history once mention his own name, or any one thing which he did or said for the service of Christianity; though Paul speaks of him in the most honourable terms, #Col 4:14|; 2Tim 4:11; and probably as the brother whose praise in the Gospel went through all the Churches, #2Cor 8:18|. The same remark may be made on the rest of the sacred historians, who every one of them show the like amiable modesty.


People's Bible Notes for Acts 16:10


Ac 16:10 We endeavored to go into Macedonia. Sought to find a ship to carry them across. There is no intimation that they preached at this time of Troas, but a few years later we find here a church (Ac 20:6-12). Here, first, the writer of Acts speaks of himself as one of the company and adopts the style of an eye witness. It is supposed that Luke joined the missionary band at Troas.

Discussion for Acts 16

    In verse 10 we see how Paul was eager and willing to accept the assignment from God.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    God was the protector and guide of Paul and Silas. He saw them through the thick and thin of their missionary journeys. The Holy Spirit was in hand to tell them where to go and not to go. Wherever they went, coverts were won. Even when jailed, God came to the rescue. It is the same God today and we must look up to him for daily guidance. In turn, we should spread the gospel to lost souls.
  • Ray321
    Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

    Amen. Obey and receive. If you believe on Him you will follow His commandments. You cannot just believe and be saved. The Apostles They who said this vers Knew that those who truly believe on Jesus's name will repent and follow the righteous way to The Father which Jesus taught. Read The book of Matthew chapter 5 for the information in what Jesus said and taught. I love you all. May The Good Lord bless you this day and forever as your walk in Him continues. Amen.-Tahj
