Recently I have been reflecting on Acts 8. The church in Jerusalem was in trouble. There was persecution and imminent death for all who called on the name of Jesus.
So, the people were forced to flee for their lives. They scattered all over. But verse 4 says: “Those who were scattered went everywhere PREACHING the word.”
These early believers chose to view their current situation as God’s opportunity. A change in perspective made all the difference.
