Committed to teaching and obeying the word of God

Simon the Magician

As we look at the example of Simon the Magician in Acts 8:9-24, we can learn from Simon and the response from Peter the error of Simon’s way and remember that our focus is to be on the grace of God, and that what we get from God cannot be earned or purchased.

Sustaining Grace

Proceeding Stephen’s speech made to the Jews (Acts 7:1-53), Stephen was cast out of the city and stoned by those who opposed him. Here in Acts 7:54-60, we learn more about the Jews response and Stephen’s faithfulness as he endured to the end by the sustaining grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and what we can learn from this piece of God’s Word.
