Sometimes it is right to leave.

Sometimes it is right to leave

Acts 19:8 “But some of them became obstinate; they refused to believe and publicly maligned the Way. So Paul left them. He took the disciples with him and had discussions daily in the lecture hall of Tyrannus.”

It is okay to leave. Sometimes it is essential.

Those he tried to reach were obstinate, unmoveable in their positions.

They just would not believe.

In fact they rubbished the Christian movement.

It was hopeless. So Paul left them.

He had given it 3 months of his best work but then enough was enough.

He took people with him that he wanted.

He continued his ministry.

He found a new place.

Why stay around the unmoveable, those whose will was set against God’s and who refused to change?

You have a short life. Why hang around those who don’t want you? It is time to leave, to move on.

Sometimes things have to end. Groups need to be closed down. People need to be changed. Positions need to be wound down.

If you don’t let things die or if you don’t walk away then you will never be in the place for a new season and a new adventure with God. We all want a new outpouring from God but unless we move away from the politics and the religion then we will never be in the right place to receive what we want.

So take up the courage today and leave.
