Scripture Reading Acts 4:13
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
Reflections: Peter and John were arrested and arraigned before the Ruling Council at Jerusalem. Their crime was that they had healed the lame man who sat at the gate of the temple. The panel consisting of Rulers, Scribes, Sadducees and Priests were held spellbound as they listened to the defense of Peter. What shocked them was the boldness with which Peter spoke. They soon discovered the source of Peter’s boldness- his affiliation with Jesus!. Clearly our faith in Christ produces one of the essential life virtues we need-BOLDNESS. The ruling council had no choice than to release Peter and his fellow Apostles. Your faith producing boldness is your key to overcome intimidating and limiting factors in your life. Boldness makes you unstoppable! Shout and declare that you are bold in Jesus’ name! Thank God for the power of boldness!
Prayer: Dear Lord, I thank you that my faith in you produces boldness in my life.
Confession: in Christ I am as bold as a lion. I cannot be intimated in life. I am unstoppable!
