Flee for your lives!

Acts 11:19-21 (ESV)Now those who were scattered because of the persecution that arose over Stephen traveled as far as Phoenicia and Cyprus and Antioch, speaking the word to no one except Jews. 20 But there were some of them, men of Cyprus and Cyrene, who on coming to Antioch spoke to the Hellenists also, preaching the Lord Jesus. 21 And the hand of the Lord was with them, and a great number who believed turned to the Lord.
When men don’t shy away from their Biblical responsibilities great things happen. We’re talking supernatural, Holy Spirit inspired awesome stuff. For these dudes, persecution swept over the early church. They fleed for their lives, leaving everything known behind, all because they refused to denounce their faith. The cool thing is they didn’t whine about it, get mad at God over it, nor did they allow their faith to go into hiding. No! What they did was tell every person they met about Jesus Christ. They figured if we’re going, we’re bringing as many people with us as possible. I love those boys! Real danger surrounded them, but rather than fear man, they chose to honour God. Here’s the thing; when you’ve been Unleashed, you have this inner passion to see as many people as possible Unleashed as well. Persecution Unleashed the early church, I wonder what are we going to do when it comes.
