11/16/12 Daily Devotion

Acts 4:1-4 The priests and the captain of the temple guard and the Sadducees came up to Peter and John while they were speaking to the people. [2] They were greatly disturbed because the apostles were teaching the people, proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead. [3] They seized Peter and John and, because it was evening, they put them in jail until the next day. [4] But many who heard the message believed; so the number of men who believed grew to about five thousand.

Peter and John were thrown into prison, but that did not stop the movement of God. As they were being carted off, numerous amounts of people turned their lives over to God. Peter and John were willing to offer the message of God no matter the consequences. They did not change the message in hope of sparing themselves any inconveniences. They did not alter the message in an attempt to not hurt anyone’s feelings. They brought forth the Word of God, and God brought out of the crowd a multitude of new believers. Our task is no different. We are to carry the Word of God into this world and allow God to bring it into receptive hearts, so they might alter their lives and begin to follow Him. Are you stepping out for God or remaining in place for yourself?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, show me what I must do, and I will do it. Show me where I must go, and I will go. Tell me what I should say, and I will speak.
