Bible Reading: Acts 4:8-22
Thursday, July 24, 2014
The Jewish leaders told Peter and John “not to say anything or to teach anything in the name of Jesus” (verse 18b). But Peter and John answered them, “Should we obey you or God? We cannot be quiet. We must tell people about what we have seen and heard” (verse 19b).
Sometimes people make fun of us or threaten us when we talk about Jesus. It is easy to just give up and stop talking about Jesus. But God wants us to obey Him and tell others about Jesus. When we talk about Jesus, we may face problems. But God will be with us and help us — just like He was with Peter and John.
Obey God today. Don’t be afraid to tell others about His Son! — ECW
“But when we obey God’s teaching, his love is truly working in us. This is how we know that we are living in him. If we say we live in God, we must live the way Jesus lived.” 1 John 2:5-6
PRAYER: Dear God, help me to obey and trust You as I share Jesus with others. In His name. Amen.
