“Speak the Word of God Boldly”
Jesus disciples and followers realized they needed help.
They need the Holy Spirit’s help.
Please read the following verses, looking for the Spirit.
23 On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them.
24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them.
25 You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David:
“‘Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
26 The kings of the earth take their stand
and the rulers gather together
and against his Anointed One.’
27 Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed.
28 They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen.
29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.
30 Stretch out your hand to heal and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
31 After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
Many times we either don’t speak the Word of God or we speak it timidly.
As believers, we are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and He will help us speak with boldness as we share the Word of the Lord God.
Thank You, Lord God, for sending Your Spirit, to enlighten us, and to make us bold. Amen
