Today's Verse : Acts 5:29

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

Thought

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?

Prayer

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.

  1. This is so applicable in every area of our lives. It represents the temptation we are each encountered with each day and the only acceptable decision for us. God has promised "He will never leave us nor forsake us, therefore we can say with all confidence, "They Lord is our Helper, we will not fear what man will do unto me.""
