Committed to teaching and obeying the word of God

Though He Slay Me

We now turn to Acts 12 and ponder what happened to both James, the brother of John and Peter. Why was it that James was killed by Herod, but Peter spared and then later rescued? We can know for certain that whatever the outcome may be, even when things don’t make sense, we can know for certain that all things happen to maximize the glory of God. When facing trials, we can ask ourselves “What can I learn from this trial?”, but most importantly we should additionally ask “How can I conduct myself in this trial in the way that brings God the most glory?”
