Truth for Today
Acts 4:13 13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus.
Time with Jesus brings boldness to our witness for Christ.
Recently I had the opportunity to spend time with some friends in Alabama. My wife and I had a wonderful time. Because of that time with Jim and Paulette in a beautiful and inspiring setting we have told at least two dozen people about this place and our friends who really neat people.
Over 6 years ago I began writing these devotions because I enjoyed spending time with Jesus. I want the time I spend with HIM to result in bold testimony for Him. How can I not tell of the wonderful work HE does in my life?
Peter and John had a marvelous witness. It wasn’t because they were quick on their feet. Their witness wasn’t strong just because they were gifted. Their witness had power because they had been with Jesus.
There is a person who yearns for someone who has spent time with Jesus to tell them about the Savior. Their eternity hangs in balance. Their joy is waiting to spring forth. Life is theirs if we would only tell them. We will tell them if we spend time with Jesus.
Time with Jesus bring boldness to our witness for Christ.
Father, as the deer pants for streams of living water so I long to be with YOU because YOU are my God and I love YOU…In Jesus Name…Amen!!!
