Scripture: Acts 4:12-13 There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved. The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.
Devotional: If you’ve ever felt intimidated to witness to others because you don’t feel you know Scripture well enough, these verses should encourage you. Peter and John were just ordinary men without any special training in the Scriptures. But what set them apart is that they had been with Jesus.
The more time you spend with Jesus, the more you will be able to know and experience Him and the more you will want to share that with others. Making space in your daily life to pray and to read His Word to you will enable you to fulfill His purpose for your life.
Just as Jesus had to withdraw to a quiet place and spend time with the Father, so you must withdraw from all the distractions of your life in order to connect with your Jesus.
- Kudos to you for reading these devos. It’s a great beginning to giving time and space to Jesus. Take some time now to connect with Him.
