Stephen's murder was like punching a hole in a dam. The pent up rage of Israel's leaders and their fury at this new "movement" came out in a torrent, sweeping away lives and property. God's people suffered great loss: families were torn apart and survivors were scattered from home, property and loved ones.

Let's look at the eternal good that God achieved with this scattering. The disciples went everywhere "preaching the word." Far from discouraging them, they couldn't contain themselves. They had to tell others.

One of them, Philip, headed north into Samaria. His work there was so impressive that the apostles, Peter and John, followed him. They encountered Simon, a sorcerer. So will we.

Meanwhile, Philip headed south again, beyond Jerusalem and engaged with a high court official from Ethiopia. He was a eunuch.

Both stories are more than exciting; they demonstrate prophetic fulfillment. God was bringing His promises into reality in the gritty history of devoted disciples like you and me. In this case, his name was Philip.
