Word of Life Quiet Diary
May 9, 2021 Quiet Time Passage: Acts 8:1-8
What is the passage about?
Stephen is buried as the first martyr of the church. "Saul" wreaks havoc on the church sending the disciples scattering all abroad. As they go, they share the gospel. They see demons cast out, people healed and they are consolidated in one accord.
How does this apply to life?
Persecution can bring purity and purposefulness. When times are hard we have to stay committed to being together . We remind ourselves why we have made the choice to follow Christ and His commission. Persecution, while seeming to be the "end of the church", was actually the catylst that sent God's powerful message of salvation through the Messiah, Jesus Christ out to the world. Out of death comes life! Just like Calvary! Praise God!
