Acts 6:7 – And the word of God continued to increase, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests became obedient to the faith.
Despite efforts to stop the Gospel by arresting the apostles, the word of God is spreading. After choosing deacons to serve, the apostles continue to preach and many people became disciples of Jesus. Included in the people to place their faith in Jesus were the priests who became obedient to the faith.
The word of God can’t be stopped. The Gospel is for everyone, not who I think should hear the word. The priests, who opposed Jesus and wanted to squash Christianity at all costs, became disciples that were obedient to the faith. The priests weren’t kind of half in on the deal but obedient. This should be an eye opener and a game changer to us that sometimes people we think may be “off limits” because of their religion are the very people that we can and should witness. Everyone is a wide open playing field and the Great Commission is my responsibility. Therefore, I must not be content but continue to share the Gospel at home and abroad with all.
Thank you for your love and the truth in your word. Help your Spirit guide me to be a bold witness to everyone regardless of the cost.
