Acts 23: Hard Ground
1. Some hard hearts will never become soft.
Matthew 13 - Which soil are you? hard, shallow, thorny, soft soil.
Following Jesus does not remove your problems on this earth and make everything OK today. Following Jesus removes your sin and makes your eternal soul OK with God.
2. You cannot throw in the towel right now. Dont give up.
3. God will use ungodly leaders to carry out His future plans
