As we follow Paul and Silas on the second missionary journey we find they continue to travel around Macedonia and after a few apparently brief stops they make their way to Thessalonica. Again we see some Jews and many Gentiles becoming believers, and again we see unbelieving Jews’ jealousy turn into a mob scene and then charges against Paul and Silas before the magistrates – with a bit less harsh outcome.  Despite continued difficulties, the Holy Spirit of God was and is leading every step of the way to build the church and Kingdom of God.
