Acts 4:20 – “…for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.”
The early disciples were a passionate bunch. As soon as they had been filled with the Holy Spirit, they started speaking out, sharing what they knew about Jesus to those around them. In fact, they traveled far and wide to spread the Gospel because they couldn’t remain silent after experiencing the grace and forgiveness that God had freely offered them.
As people who have tasted the love of God and seen His gracious hand at work in our lives, we too must have a similar passion to share the good news with others. If you heard of a fabulous online deal and you knew your friend was looking to buy something, wouldn’t you immediately share the details with him/her? When God gives you the opportunity to speak out and share your testimony with your friends, family, colleagues or neighbors, don’t stay silent.
Prayer: Father, thank you for working in my life and bringing me out from darkness and into the light. Give me the courage to not stay silent when I have the opportunity to speak up. Help me actively share the Gospel and my testimony with those around me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
