Persecution spreads the gospel as God shows that His ways aren’t ours.
God’s ways are not our ways and we ultimately have to live according to HIS ways.
What God thinks of compassion and hypocrisy.
When we see all circumstances as from God, we’ll pray to thrive IN them rather than escape FROM them.
The Spirit enables Peter to heal so he can again proclaim the gospel.
The Spirit does not leave unchanged those He baptizes.
