As we continue into chapters 5 and 6 , Peter and the apostles could have stopped spreading the Word of God because of fear of discipline from the Sanhedrin. Instead, they continued to teach and preach and perform miracles, always pointing others to Christ. Once again they were arrested and put into jail. In the night, an angel of the Lord appeared to them and instructed them to go back out into the temple courts in the morning to tell the people the full message.
Verse 42 of chapter 5 says, “Day after day in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Christ.” This verse explains pretty well that they persevered and just kept going and going and going. Ask yourself this, “Who have I talked to today?” Or this week? Are we as dedicated to spreading the Word as Peter? What can we do to become better at spreading the good news? How can we all become more like Peter?
So my question to you today is, “Are you obeying God rather than men?”
