God Continues to Build His Church

Acts 8:1 And Saul was there, giving approval to Stephen’s death.  On that day a great persecution broke out against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.

The first Church was concentrated in Jerusalem, but the Gospel needed to be spread throughout the earth.  The persecution which broke out against the church sent believers to all parts of the Roman Empire and with them the spreading of the Word.

Today there are many countries that do not allow the Gospel to be preached or greatly hinder telling others the transforming news of Jesus Christ.  Today there is a mass migration occurring around the world and many people are leaving countries where there is no opportunity to openly hear about Jesus Christ and arriving in places where the Gospel can be freely shared.

While it is natural for us to be concerned about the borders of our country being overrun by those who are choosing to come here, there is also an aspect of all that is happening that can be used for kingdom growth.  When someone is moves from their culture, family and religious structure, they are many, many times more open to hearing and seeing the Love of Jesus Christ.

We can rightly be concerned about the changes happening in our nation and around the world.  That being said, we are actually citizens of another heavenly world so let’s not miss the opportunity to show the Love of Jesus Christ and tell others about him that are becoming our neighbors.

Thanks for your continued support of Palm Missionary Ministries and the work that is being done by our missionaries in other parts of the world.
