Pastor's Thought for the Day
Thursday, September 4, 2014
Acts 8:1b, 4, NRSV
That day a severe persecution began against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout the countryside of Judea and Samaria. . . .4 Now those who were scattered went from place to place, proclaiming the word.
It was the law of unintended consequences at work. The Church had been isolated to Jerusalem, where the apostles were daily teaching the Gospel of Jesus to those gathered there. The Jewish leaders instituted a severe persecution trying to stamp out this heretical Jewish sect, but all it did was to spread the believers and the teaching to a multitude of other cities.
Christianity is still spreading. Who will the Lord bring across your path today who needs to hear the Gospel?
