If You Want To Learn An Important Lesson From The Boldness Of Apostle Peter And John, Read This

When Peter and John were arrested, it was no longer a secret that they had grown fearless as a result of their unwavering commitment to the gospel and their ability to defend it with conviction. The disapproval of religious beliefs is a common reaction among people who find themselves in a difficult situation.

Others are intimidated by the prospect of defending the Christian faith. It was clear that they had spent time with Christ and been baptized with the Holy Spirit prior to arriving that they were fearless. Those who profess to be filled with the Holy Spirit but lack confidence in their own abilities were most likely not baptized in the name of the Lord.

A relationship with Christ is impossible without the presence of the Holy Spirit, because anyone who accepts Christ makes room for the Holy Spirit's indwelling, which is promised after Jesus' ascension to Heaven. It is impossible to be in the presence of Christ unless the Holy Spirit is present.

Surprised that you lack the courage to speak out in defense of your religious beliefs? Is this something you expected? When this occurs, you must go back to the beginning and repent, because the boldness that the Holy Spirit bestows on believers does not come upon unbelievers unless it is to convict them of their sins, in which case you must start over.

When Peter and John risked their lives by telling Soldiers that they were unable to achieve what the government demanded because it interfered with their religious beliefs, they were arrested and imprisoned in a military cantonment for the rest of their lives. Many Christians in positions of authority lack this confidence, which explains why misrule and anti-Christian legislation are so common among Christians in authority.

Let's take a chance and try something different. You will be blessed with a new outpouring of the Holy Spirit today while you are in God's presence.
