Scripture: "Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot, but speak the things which we have seen and heard."
Reflection: Peter and John had been with the Lord. They had been eyewitnesses to His death, burial and resurrection. Shortly after Pentecost, Peter and John were proclaiming the message, but the leaders of the cities and the multitude of people were wanting to silence their message. Sharing the truth of the Gospel may mean we will face opposition. Peter and John maintained zeal for God and were compelled to share the message.
Application: With the most amazing message of all the things you could talk to someone about and that is more impactful than anything else you could ever share, pray the Lord would give you a zeal like that of Peter and John and then go out and seek and save the lost.
