Tuesday

Read Acts 5:27-32

27 They brought the apostles in, made them stand before the Council, and the High Priest questioned them. 28 “We gave you strict orders not to teach in the name of this man,” he said; “but see what you have done! You have spread your teaching all over Jerusalem, and you want to make us responsible for his death!”

29 Peter and the other apostles answered, “We must obey God, not men. 30 The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from death, after you had killed him by nailing him to a cross. 31 God raised him to his right side as Leader and Savior, to give the people of Israel the opportunity to repent and have their sins forgiven. 32 We are witnesses to these things—we and the Holy Spirit, who is God's gift to those who obey him.”

Think

"We must obey God, not men.  The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from death, after you had killed him..." (Verses 29-30)

Standing before people who have the power and the will to get people killed - Peter speaks boldly because they have no fear of death.

Pray

Take away my fear of death as I put my faith in the power of resurrection.
