Want to read the Bible with me today? http://www.timhowey.com/2016/01/my-bible-reading-2016.html
First, ask God to see something you can apply to your life.
Then, read Acts 4.
Then, write down something you can apply to your life.
Then, read what I wrote:
- Historical — The religious leaders arrest Peter and John for preaching Jesus (fearing the spread of Christianity which then had 5000 people in the church at Jerusalem), but they could not punish them nor deny that the lame man had been healed, so they threatened them and let them go.
- Doctrinal — God changes people in ways that the skeptics cannot deny, though they might hate the message of the resurrection.
- Inspirational — Verses 18 through 20 remind me of a time when God wants to disobey the government: when they are forbidding me from doing something God told me to do (like telling people about Jesus).
