But Peter and John answered and said to them, "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." Acts 4:19-20

What stops Christians from sharing the Gospel? The religious teachers in Jerusalem hoped that intimidating Peter and John would prevent them from performing miracles and telling people about Jesus. However, Peter and John had a clear mission for their lives and knew what God had asked them to do.

Their boldness didn't happen overnight. They had been with Jesus, witnessed His resurrection, and were convinced. This focused their lives on what mattered most.

If you struggle with boldness or courage in speaking about your faith, Peter and John offer a helpful clue about where to begin: What have you seen and heard? The boldness to share the Gospel comes from having spent time with Jesus, experiencing transformation, and then speaking out of the work of God in your life.

If you make time to be with Jesus daily, the courage to speak will come naturally. What you have seen and experienced will be too good to not share, regardless of what some people may think.

Prayer: Lord, I trust that You can give me the words to speak to others.
