Summary

The persecution of Stephen brings about a scattering of the believers. Like the bones in the valley of Ezekiel 37 there is a rattling. God’s Spirit leads us out of our comfort zone, out of the place where we are prone to rely on our own strength and abilities. He does not want us to become luke warm and complacent. He puts us into places where we need to trust God in ways that we have never had to trust him before.

As the believers scatter a close bond of mutual concern becomes increasingly evident.
