Courage to Speak Up

Tomorrow is our last day for VBS and it’s a great lesson. It is the story from Acts 4:1-20 where Peter and John are before the Sanhedrin. Imagine…Peter and John being brought before the Sanhedrin to account for their actions (simply preaching, teaching, and healing in the name of Jesus). Their boldness in the face of possible death is astounding. Here are the two things that stick out the most to me in this passage:

Verse 13 – “…they took note that these men had been with Jesus.” Can people tell you have been with Jesus? Are you reflecting the Christ that is inside you? I don’t always hit this mark – but I pray that people can see Jesus in me by the way I treat them.

Verse 20 – “For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” May this phrase be the thing that is at the front of our minds not only during VBS – but always. May we be so changed by our relationship with Christ that we can’t help telling others about what God has done in our lives.

Enjoy our last two nights of VBS and go into your world and spread the good news!
