Acts 4

Good Morning Spirit Filled Gospel Preachers… yes I mean you.  If you believe and have received Jesus, I mean you.  

Take a look at Acts 4

The Disciples are actually doing it.  They are loving on people and sharing the Truth of the Gospel.  People are repenting and becoming Jesus followers by the thousands and the religious leaders are again stirred up!

“They seized Peter and John and, because it was evening, they put them in jail until the next day. But many who heard the message believed; so the number of men who believed grew to about five thousand. “ Acts 4:3-4

What is the message they are preaching?  It’s still the same message - it never changes.  Repent and be baptized with the Holy Spirit for the forgiveness of sins.

“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” Acts 12

The leaders aren’t sure what to do with these guys.  Their followers have become many, and they speak with wisdom that is beyond them.  So after discussing it they decide to warn them.  

“Then they called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. “But Peter and John replied, “Which is right in God’s eyes: to listen to you, or to him? You be the judges! As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.””
‭‭Acts 4:18-20

Jesus promised the Disciples they would be arrested and killed for the message they preach.  They witnessed Jesus horrible beating and death… yet they cannot help speaking about what they have experienced!  They are willing to risk it all - Talk about The Holy Spirit Power!  

So what do you do when you’re facing certain death for your message… Quit?  No way!  They prayed…

Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.” Acts 4:29‬ ‭

Man if only we could be so BOLD!  Love you all.  Dig in.  Acts is cool!
