“Peter and the apostles replied: “we must obey God rather than human beings! The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead – whom you killed by hanging Him on a cross. God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel to repentance and forgive their sins. We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
Dear God please fill me with this spirit and understanding. Reading of your apostles boldness inspires me, making me want to line up with them in ever way. Thank you God for this birthright in which we have the freedom to operate in You. Lead me to obedience so that I may receive an abundance of Your Spirit. Christ fulfilled the law that I may be able to walk by it through the Spirit. God I want to take full advantage of this blessing.
