2/18/15 Daily Devotion

Acts 3:15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.

Harsh, but truthful words. They killed the author of life, but this was all in accordance to the will of God. They didn’t understand this to be factual, even the disciples believed that Jesus was gone and was gone forever. They experienced His resurrection in numerous ways making them witnesses to the event of His death and resurrection. This is why Peter could stand with such confidence. This is why Peter could bring forth this heart wrenching message so easily. This is why Peter had to stand before them and share the message of Christ. Peter brought forth information about the resurrection that he had witnessed, events that he understood, situations that he had knowledge about. If Peter had so much information to bring forth, how can God expect us to stand up and bring His presence into this world? While we cannot speak of the resurrection, we can speak about what the resurrection has done within our lives. While we are not firsthand witnesses, we are witnesses to what He has done in our lives. We have a story, just as Peter, to share with the world. The question is this: are we willing to stand up and share?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me have the confidence to stand up and share what you have done within my life.
