Scripture

Acts 4

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

Why were the Sudducees upset? What enabled Peter to speak so boldly, and what did he say?

Application

Am I prepared for people to be upset if I proclaim the resurrection of Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice as the only means for eternal life?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear Father in heaven, Thank You that Your Spirit filled Peter and guided him. I ask that same Spirit to fill and empower and direct me, that I may boldly proclaim that there is salvation in no one else but Jesus Christ, the only Name under heaven by which we can be saved! In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)
