Devotional For May 26, 2024

Then the word of God spread, and the number of the disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were obedient to the faith.
‭‭Acts‬ ‭6‬:‭7‬

The early Church faced numerous challenges as it sought to fulfill the Great Commission of spreading the gospel to all nations. From disputes to persecution, the disciples encountered obstacles at every turn. Yet, in the midst of adversity, they remained faithful in their dedication to God’s mission.

Despite facing opposition from religious leaders and societal pressures, the disciples continued to preach the gospel with boldness and conviction. And as a result, the Word of God spread rapidly, and the number of disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem.

The growth of the early Church was a demonstration of God’s power at work through His Spirit. The Holy Spirit empowered the disciples to proclaim the gospel with clarity and conviction, and He moved in the hearts of hearers, drawing them to faith in Christ.

We should be inspired by the example of the early Church. May we, like the disciples, remain steadfast in our commitment to proclaiming the gospel, even in the face of opposition and adversity. And may we trust in the power of God’s Word and the work of His Spirit to continue transforming lives and multiplying disciples for His kingdom.


Lord, thank You for the example of the early Church and the power of Your Word to transform lives. Help me to be a bold and faithful witness for You, even in the midst of challenges and opposition. May Your Spirit empower me to spread the gospel with clarity and conviction, and may Your kingdom continue to advance as a result. In Jesus’ name, amen.
