The Lemonade Principle

The Lemonade Principle…

In the Book of Acts, chapter 8 describes how the believers were scattered. They were persecuted so they were scattered. The word in Greek is “Diaspora.”

We get the word dispersed or dispersion from that. It’s the same word used for the worldwide scattering and persecution of the Jewish people, which is the “diaspora” the dispersion of the Jewish people. The disciples were dispersed so they would go forth.

What did they do? As they go, they would spread the gospel and people got saved. It’s interesting that the word “Diaspora” actually means to sow seeds. As persecution disperses them, they use it to “diaspora,” to sow seeds of the gospel.

Something really profound: you see when things seem bad, persecution, “diaspora,” it ends up being the sowing of life which tells us something. For a child of God, hidden in every problem is redemption.

Whatever problem you are going through, there’s something good about it. God is waiting to bring it forth. Start looking for the life that has come forth from the seed of God which is to be sown, there is waiting a Diaspora.

Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14

What problems are there in your life – take them and use them for God’s glory and to spread His salvation.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
