Today is Thursday, December 14, 2017. Hi, my name is Adam Burton, and you are listening to the daily devo. A short devotional designed to help you apply God’s Word to your life. The content comes from the Gospel Project.
Take a few moments and read: Acts 3:1-10; 4:5-31.
Like the first Christians, we face spiritual resistance. Most of us haven’t had to risk our lives (though some Christians in the world certainly do), but we do risk ridicule and rejection from an unbelieving culture, friends, neighbors, and family. It’s tempting to try to prove ourselves right when we confront resistance, but we should take a cue from the way Peter and John responded to the Jewish leaders. Rather than trying to win an argument, Peter simply declared what he knew to be true—Jesus is the cornerstone and salvation comes by no other name.
Think about this: What will it look like when a Christian’s ultimate allegiance is to Jesus? How can your story of hearing and believing the gospel open doors for sharing the gospel with others?
