Nothing could stop them from talking about Jesus. They had been thrown into prison because of it and had been warned repeatedly, but Peter and John boldly declared that they could not stop. They had been with Jesus; they believed in Him and the power of His resurrection. Nothing and no one would stop them from talking about the Savior.
The book of Acts is filled with the great stories of the early church. like Peter and John, most of the early believers were ordinary people, unschooled yet knowledgeable about what was most important (see Acts 4:13). Most of them hadn’t been trained in the synagogue, but they were capable preachers and teachers because they taught what they were most excited about-the good news about Jesus.
As grandparents we can relate to talking about what excites us most. Given an opportunity, and we’ll be more than happy to talk about our grandchildren. It’s natural, we just cannot keep quiet about the ones who fill our lives with joy. We should be equally enthusiastic about telling others and our grandchildren about Jesus- just like the new believers in the early Christian church did. We don’t need special training or years of schooling; we just need to share what Jesus has done for us.
Verse to Remember (Acts 4:19-20)
Psalm 143:10 Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
Spread God’s Word…Sometimes I want to shout with glee- “Hey everybody, look at me- I found Him in the warmth of friendship in the joy of giving I found Him in loving in laughing- in living!
I found God And you can find Him, too- Just open up your heart and God will come to you! -Alice Joyce Davidson-
And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15
