Today's Verse : Acts 5:29


May 29, 2012

Peter and the other apostles replied: "We must obey God rather
than men!"
-- Acts 5:29

Against a stern warning from the ruling council in Jerusalem,
called the Sanhedrin, Peter and the other apostles proclaimed Jesus
as Lord. They knew that Jesus had triumphed over the attempts of
his enemies to extinguish him and his ministry. The apostles
blatantly disobeyed the orders of the very same people who had
Jesus crucified. By any standard, that is faithful courage. How are
you doing in the "standing up for Jesus" battle?

Lord God Almighty, please empower me by your Spirit to be
courageous. I do not want to ever back down from my convictions nor
ever renounce my faith in Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
