Acts 5:25
“And someone came and told them, “Look! The men whom you put in prison are standing in the temple and teaching the people.””

Standing their ground and preaching the Word again! This is what they were put in prison for, but they were released to preach the Good News to those who are lost, and so they stand their ground in conviction and obey God, even though they realize they will be put back in prison or worse.

Conviction is
Not something
We hold but
What grips
Our heart

We should admire their courage, and regain the capacity of the early Church to suffer for Christ, from deep conviction at any cost. Father God, thank You for gripping my heart with Your love, picking me up, changing my mind, and transforming my entire life. Allow me to walk with You, stand on Your Word and speak boldly for You in love by the power of Your Spirit, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

ACTION: Stand and speak
