By Pastor Doug Bielefeldt on September 30,2018. Based on the First Lesson Acts 7:51-8:1.
As the early Christian Church emerged, so did opposition to silence it through persecution. The same opposition still exists today, and as believers of Christ, it is important that we stand firm in the truth of God’s promises. God is faithful in His love and through the Persecuted Church, reaches out to the threatened, transforms and strengthens them, and welcomes them into His Kingdom.
