"Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word."
Reflection: Prior to the Apostle Paul's conversion, he went about "entering every house, and dragging off men and women, commtting them to prison" (Acts 8:3). What happened as a result of the persecution by Saul was the spread of the Gospel into other areas. Notice how in the scattering of the new believers, they went "everywhere preaching the word." They went and told the Good News wherever they ended up. Isn't it interesting to think that even prior to Saul's conversion, God was spreading the Gospel!
Application: Are you making an attempt to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those around you? Begin spreading the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and "preach" to others to "repent and believe in the Gospeol" (Mark 1:15) wherever the Lord has you now.
