Sometimes you just run out of it! That’s what happened to Teaching Pastor Scot Pollok as he discussed the two episodes in this passage. What we find is that the story of Ananias and Sapphira is really about God and His chosen ambassadors, the apostles. The next episode is linked as God continues to intervene for the sake of the apostles, even as they are jailed and flogged. We should be careful not to abuse this principle with “untouchable” modern-day “apostles,” as some have taught. That’s not what it meant then, and it doesn’t mean that now. We should, most importantly, spend time meditating on our truthfulness, our promotion of the truth, our suffering for the sake of the gospel and our trust in the Father’s care.
