If you are a believer, you will face trials like alienation, slander, humiliation, and sorrow - things that no one looks forward to. But they are a part of the life of any believer - one who is actively living for God in an increasingly hostile society. When we are faithful to God’s ways, we make unrepentant sinners uncomfortable.
These messages teach us about the trials that the early Church faced. Right from the start, they were at odds with the state, God punished Ananias and Sapphira in a seemingly severe way, and Stephen became the first Christian martyr. This was a rough start for the Church, but God blessed their efforts.
