So onto Testament Tuesday as we read through the book of Acts. I think the thing that stood out to me the most was how God consistently used the persecution of the Christians to advance the spreading of the Gospel. A couple times we saw where the believers were scattered and it was always followed by a statement about many more hearing about Christ through that.
So What does that mean for us? Well let's think about it. If I were a follower of Christ during those times, I would have had a very well mapped out plan as to how I was going to spread the word about Christ and it wouldn't have included persecution and running away. I bet they weren't much different.
It makes me think of other times when I have had a plan that hasn't gone my way and reminds me that God's plans are far superior to mine.
Sorry this is short this week. I am super tired and a little overextended. I promise to do better next week. :)
Here are a few more vacation pics.
