How Radical

I was reading in Acts 4 tonight to follow along with a sermon excerpt I was listening to from John Piper when I noticed I had a verse outlined in Acts 5.

I had verse 31 underlined, but I began to read the context surrounding that verse. I cannot help but share these verses.

And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest questioned them, saying, “We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree. God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins. And we are witnesses to these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”Acts 5:27-32

Preach the gospel! The message of Jesus as Luke recorded, “God exalted him at his right hand as Leader and Savior, to give repentance to Israel and forgiveness of sins.”

May we be witnesses of these things along with the Holy Spirit and those who have gone before us.
