Golden Verse 金句

For unclean spirits, crying out with a loud voice, came out of many who had them, and many who were paralyzed or lame were healed. So there was much joy in that city. 
                                      Acts 8:7-8 
 因 為 有 許 多 人 被 污 鬼 附 著 , 那 些 鬼 大 聲 呼 叫 , 從 他 們 身 上 出 來 ; 還 有 許 多 癱 瘓 的 , 瘸 腿 的 , 都 得 了 醫 治 。
在 那 城 裡 , 就 大 有 歡 喜 。

                                    使 徒 行 傳 8:7-8

Today's Reading: Acts 7:54-8:8

     What I got from Jesus is: More suffering, more salvation
     What I got from Jesus today is a comfort for those who are in suffering. As we see in what happened in this passage, severe suffering and persecution came after Stephen was stoned to death and became the first martyr in the Early Church.
     But, as a result of those sufferings two things happened:
1. Before that most disciples wanted to stay in Jerusalem and didn't want to go to elsewhere. After that, they had to spread out to various place and made the Great Commission a reality.
2. More healing and miracles happened and great joy happened in Samaria.

    Most people in North America do not need Jesus because most people are save an secure. They do not need Jesus. Sufferings take off the "shield" that we suddenly realize we really need Jesus. Then, healing comes, transformation comes and everything good things begin to grow. 

    Don't afraid of suffering. More suffering, more salvation. 

Dear Lord Jesus,
Lead us to have more faith to trust in you that we won't be afraid of suffering. The more suffering, more people will be saved by you. We desperately need you. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
