Acts 8:1-25

December 23, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

“But the believers who were scattered preached the Good News about Jesus wherever they went.” v. 4 (NLT)

After the stoning of Steven, Saul who agreed with Stephens stoning went from house to house putting Christ Followers in jail.  This caused the early church to spread out into other areas of that region because of persecution.  People were leaving Jerusalem and moving to other towns for safety.  Thus again fulfilling what Jesus said,

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8 (NLT)

Even though the early church was scattering because of persecution it didn’t stop the early believers from sharing the Good News.  Because of their commitment and boldness, the church kept growing.  People were turning from their sin and coming into a relationship with God.  God was using ordinary people to bring the extraordinary message of Christ to others and He desires to use you and I in the same ways.

The Real Question for us Today is: Are we, you and I, willing to tell others about Jesus wherever we go? Why or why not?
