Prophets Needed

Acts 7:52

“Which of the prophets did your ancestors not persecute?”

The prophets got plenty of praise after they were long dead. While they were alive they generally got persecuted by those who were in power…whether government or religious leaders. The prophets were always calling attention to the ways that the people of God were failing to make their top priority to serve God. The prophets had to be prayerful to listen to the inner voice of God and then they had to be brave in speaking out to those in power…both government and religious leaders…in the name of compassion, fairness and justice. For the prophet Stephen…it cost him his life. Following God’s will is not always easy but it is everyone’s calling! This is the only way to true freedom as well as to becoming your true self. Who are today’s prophets? They are likely the ones being persecuted and thrown out by those holding the power. God is still calling prophets to stand for those being treated unjustly and unfairly. Maybe God is calling you?
