Alex Kremer 08-15-2021 // The God of History; Acts 8:4-24
It has been said that History is His Story. This acknowledges that God is a God of history and works all things to His purposes. Even in tragic events, such as the death of Jesus Christ and His saints, as seen in the stoning of Stephen, God continues to work.
In today's lesson, we see Saul ravaging the church, opening the great persecution of the church in Jerusalem and causing the church to flee. But even in this we see God's hand, because the church, once confined largely to Jerusalem and Judea, now spread to Samaria. This fulfills Christ's purpose for His followers to preach the Gospel in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and the ends of the earth.
Thank you for listening to today's lesson. May you be blessed through the teaching of God's Word.
