As the early church grew, those who were a part of all that happened were often filled with wonder and amazement. It was an exciting time! The people enjoyed the favor of all those they came in contact with. Until the persecution came. By Acts 8, the Church was enduring a great persecution. I can’t imagine how disillusioned those early church members must have been, as they were forced out of Jerusalem. Could the Church still be the Church? This Sunday we will see that what these early Christ followers experienced has application for us today as well.
