Here is the Faithful Friday word for you today!
Faithful Friday is an initiative from our clergy to further explore the Word of God and to reconnect people with Bible verses
Please feel free to reflect on what each passage means to you and let us know if any of the passages inspire you.
Blog post by David Hildred:
These chapters in Acts show how the good news of Jesus continues to fan out and begin its worldwide spread, but they also show how that movement was under threat both from without and within. The story of Ananias and Sapphira is tragic: they have copied an act of generosity inspired by the Holy Spirit, but theirs is filled with mixed motives and deceit. The outcome for them reminds us that the holiness of God is searingly fatal and that there is only one way we can stand before God, and that is by being united with Christ Jesus. The early disciples recognised how much people needed to hear that good news, and that it was their task to share it.
