Today’s thought “Counted worthy to suffer dishonour” (April 25)

Acts tells how the numbers of believers in Christ multiplied rapidly. The pouring out of God’s Spirit on the day of Pentecost was being manifested in dramatic ways.

In these days, when we get to see horrible pictures of war crimes, we see enough proof of how man has gone far away from the precepts or prescriptions of God.
