Acts 7:51-8:3, God’s Ways and His Purposes

Following on from Stephen’s sermon, we see the result, as he is put to death by the Jews. The Jews do not see the error of their ways this leads to Stephen seeing Jesus and finally, we now see the fulfilment of Jesus’ words. The disciples are scattered into Judea and Samaria just as Jesus had said in Acts 1:8. Despite the horror and the evil of Stephen’s death, God uses it for good and for his glory as he fulfils his word.
