Wednesday, August 4, 2004

Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.
— Acts 8:4

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

When someone tries to stomp out the flame of dry broom weed, the sparks fly upward and ride upon the wind, spreading the flame far and wide. As Satan tried to use persecution to discourage the early church, the very martyrdom and persecution that drove these Christians from their homes was used by God to spread the message wherever they went. Each believer was a spark driven on the Divine Wind of God's empowering Spirit.

My Prayer...

O great God of mercy and grace, give me a holy passion to share your love and power with all I meet no matter what circumstances led them into my acquaintance. Give me the wisdom to see and the courage to act on the opportunities to share Jesus with those in my life. In the name of the Lord Jesus, I pray. Amen.
