Unstoppable! 'We Are Witnesses!' — Acts 2:32

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

[Peter continued his sermon:] "God raised Jesus from the dead, and we are all witnesses of this."
— Acts 2:32 NLT

Key Thought

What are you willing to risk your life to say? The apostles had seen Jesus alive after his death. They had eaten with Jesus, seen his wounds, heard his voice, and shared in prayer with their risen Lord. Nothing could stop them from speaking about what they had seen and heard from the resurrected Jesus. So, they did what their risen Lord commanded them to do: They were witnesses who shared their testimony about their risen Lord, and they began in Jerusalem on that day of Pentecost. Their witness, their Lord, and their message were all unstoppable!

Today's Prayer

Father, God of heaven and earth and the all-powerful Creator of the universe, I confess that I forget. I forget how powerful you are. I forget the depth of your grace and mercy. I forget that you have asked me to partner with you in sharing your message with the lost world. So, dear LORD, I ask for your forgiveness and promise to rededicate myself to being a witness for Jesus by the power of the Holy Spirit. I make this promise to Jesus' glory. Amen.
