You can teach two people the same material. One will believe what you teach and the other will not believe it. Why does that happen? We could get frustrated trying to find out the reason or reasons that every unbeliever chooses not to believe. However, we can find encouragement in knowing that the problem has existed since the first century, for after Paul had spoken to Jews in Rome about Jesus, the Luke shows their reaction,

And some were persuaded by the things which were spoken, and some disbelieved (Acts 28.24). 

The Lord will deal with them later. Paul did his part and you do your part. Leave the rest to the Lord.


  • Has the anticipation that someone might not believe what you teach, kept you from teaching?
  • Have you found out later that you misjudged some of those people?
