Dragging Them Off

03 Aug

Saint Philip Healing the Cripple in Samaria Jacob Jordaens  (Flemish, Antwerp 1593–1678 Antwerp)Hey person, I’m still fuming from last week’s story.

I’m sad that Stephen was killed and I’m so mad at Saul because he let that happen.

Saul could have stopped it and he didn’t.

If I ever find him, I’m going to grab his clothes in my teeth and play tug-of-war with them.

You know how strong I am from when I play tug-of-war with you – except I don’t do it with your clothes.

I might get in trouble if I did that, huh?

Okay I’ll listen to the story, but if I get mad again I’m covering up my ears.


On that day a great persecution broke out against the church at Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were scattered throughout Judea and Samaria.


This is not good.

I think I’ll cover my ears now.

Okay, I’ll listen a little bit longer.

But if it’s bad I’m covering my ears.


Godly men buried Stephen and mourned deeply for him. But Saul began to destroy the church. Going from house to house, he dragged off men and women and put them in prison.


Okay, that’s it.

Saul and I have a date for a game of tug-of-war and I’m dragging him off.

And then I’m covering my ears.


Those who had been scattered preached the word wherever they went.


Hey wait a minute.

Isn’t that what Saul was trying to stop?


Philip went down to a city in Samaria and proclaimed the Christ there. When the crowd heard Philip and saw the miraculous signs he did, they all paid close attention to what he said.


Do you think Philip could do a miracle to get rid of Saul?

He won’t have to?

Why not?

Oh, I get it.

Someone else is going to take care of Saul.

Maybe even me.

Okay, I won’t cover my ears.


With shrieks, evil spirits came out of many,…


You make me leave my ears uncovered and then I hear shrieks.

Okay, I’m listening.


…and many paralytics and cripples were healed. So there was great joy in that city.


Hey, Saul was kind of the cause of the great joy coming to that city.

I bet that makes him mad.

      Snoopy, I’ve been looking all over for Saul and I haven’t been able to find him – so no tug of war yet. But I’m sure glad both our peeps are home now.

      Kevin, my person says he eventually does, but in a way that you’d never expect.
