Great Joy in the City

Philip preached Jesus to the city of Samaria, and they believed what he said as they witnessed the miracles he performed, especially as unclean spirits came out of people and Philip healed the paralyzed and lame (Acts 8:6, 7).
Luke shows the result, “And there was great joy in that city” (Acts 8:8). That is not hard to believe, for there would be the same joy in your city.
Yet, we know that love surpasses miracles. If you let your love flow out toward God and the people of your city, and you persuade others to likewise love, will there not be joy in your city?
