Peter — Rearrested, tried, & beaten for preaching — The honor of suffering for Jesus.

Today’s Readings:
Reading 1: Acts 5
Reading 2: Matthew 5:10-12
Reading 3: 1 Peter 3:13-17

Following Jesus, in the power of the Holy Spirit, is a life full of supernatural factors. Maybe less extreme today than in the first century, but still powerful.

Most of us have not experienced liars dying when we challenge them by supernatural knowledge! Likewise, most of us have not seen people healed when our shadow falls on them. Maybe that is also why we have not been thrown into jail or beaten for being Christians? And if we were, it would be amazing to be released by the Holy Spirit while all the doors were still locked and guarded!

When God is working, we are caught up in His activity and have the privilege of being part of His Kingdom coming. We are to be the people of changed lives and fearless courage, not those of strident condemnation or advocacy of violence. How does God want to intervene in your day? Let’s find out….!

Have a great day!
