The persecution that was launched against the church scattered the disciples from Jerusalem and wherever they went, they boldly preached the Gospel. We review the account of Philip’s ministry among the Samaritans. We see:

  • The disciples’ resolve to continue to spread the Word in the face of Stephen’s Death
  • The success of the Gospel in Samaria

We note the joy that the Gospel reception brought to the Samaritans and we are again encouraged to be bold in preaching the Gospel, that we and others may experience the same joy, and that God may be glorified.
