As we’re looking into the beginning of Acts chapter 8, we find that the apostle Stephen, an ordinary man full of God’s transforming Spirit, had just been murdered for his beliefs, making him the first martyr for the Christian church. And, unfortunately, this chapter reveals that his murder started a trend. But it’s important to note that in running from certain death, they continued to preach the Good News of eternal life. Why would they do this? Explore with me on this Sincerely Yours devotional.

Today’s Reading

“A great wave of persecution began that day, sweeping over the church in Jerusalem, and all the believers except the apostles fled into Judea and Samaria … the believers who had fled Jerusalem went everywhere preaching the Good News about Jesus.” – Acts 8:1, 4
