However, instead of allowing persecution to silence them, they continued their evangelistic efforts with even more fervor: “Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word” (Acts 8:4). In today’s sermon from evangelist Roger Boone, we learn how Christians of today can have the same mindset to go everywhere preaching the word.
