Reading along with us in Acts? Here’s today’s reading:

Acts 8 (ESV)

And Saul approved of his execution.

And there arose on that day a great persecution against the church in Jerusalem, and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. Devout men buried Stephen and made great lamentation over him.But Saul was ravaging the church, and entering house after house, he dragged off men and women and committed them to prison.

Now those who were scattered went about preaching the word. Philip went down to the city of Samaria and proclaimed to them the Christ. And the crowds with one accord paid attention to what was being said by Philip, when they heard him and saw the signs that he did. For unclean spirits, crying out with a loud voice, came out of many who had them, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed. So there was much joy in that city.....Continue Reading

  3. Persecution breaks out just like Jesus had warned and Saul appears to be the ring leader. But good results come. The word spreads further. What a good response to persecution…..what opportunities for witness does it produce?
    And Simon confronts a greater power than wants to buy it. Peter shows him his heart is not in the right place and he accepts the rebuke but still in fleshly terms….make sure nothing bad happens to me. True repentance? Only time would tell.And
    And what a great story of Philip and the Ethiopian. Always nice when an unbeliever says he’ll me understand! So Philip explains,the Ethiopian believes, Philip is transported elsewhere (pretty neat miracle!) and the Ethiopian is undaunted and keeps rejoicing about his new found faith. It’s a good sign that it stuck!
