After the stoning of Stephen, a great persecution of the early Church broke out and Believers made a hasty retreat out of Jerusalem. They became exiles in foreign areas of Judea and Samaria…uprooted from friends and family…alone and suffering. But one thing they refused to do was to stop talking about Jesus. It says that wherever they went so did the Good News of the Gospel Message. They looked for opportunities to share the love of the Lord with those who didn’t know Him. They turned their misfortune into a mission field…always looking for a chance to proclaim the Word of God. Paul wrote in Colossians 4:5-6 about this, “Be wise in the way you act towards outsiders; make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.” Don’t allow what you may be going through today to stop you from sharing the Gospel with those around you…for you never know who needs to hear it.
