Mistaken for gods

Acts 14 v 11

I certainly can't say this has ever happened to me. Believe it or not I've never been mistaken for a god.

On their huge church planting tour Paul & Barnabas we mistaken for gods. In the polytheistic day they lived in it was not unusual for people to explain the unexplainable by creating another god. In today's cynical society they probably would have been thought of as more tricksters than gods.

But the fact remains that Paul and his companion were used by God to do some extraordinary things which resulted in this false categorisation. They clearly and quickly explained that God was responsible for these events.

Understand when I say this that I believe its all about God and not about me. But I would like to be involved in unexplainable situations where God miraculously shows up.

These were ordinary guys, not super holy, with doubts and difficulties, but they saw supernatural things and gave the credit to God.

I still believe God does supernatural things today so I will keep on asking.
