SUNDAY JANUARY 26, 2020
BIBLE TEXT: TEXT:ACTS 4:11-19
TOPIC – IN THE MOLD OF THEIR MASTER
MEMORY VERSE: “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus” (ACTS 4:13)
A lioness will spend nothing less than between two and three years to take care of her cubs. The cubs are trained from around three months of age to hunt for prey. From that tender age, the cubs are taught the act of boldness and courage as they watch the lionesses and the lions courageously tearing bigger animals into pieces. Gradually, they are transformed into bold and fearless adult lions and lionesses.
The disciples of Jesus followed Him for about three and a half years. As young converts, they passed through mentorship and training under Jesus. They learnt the Word, courage and boldness from Him. They became bold like their Master, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, when He filled them with the Holy Spirit. The Jewish leaders in the text were shocked to hear the unlearned and fearful Peter preaching Christ boldly not minding their threatening.
Christian boys and girls are to boldly and shamelessly preach Christ to their sinning friends, teachers, etc., like Peter did. Pray for the power of the Holy Spirit and for boldness to witness for Christ.
QUOTE: Pray for the power of the Holy Ghost.
CHALLENGE: The Holy Ghost fills believers with boldness.
PRAYER: O Lord, give me boldness to preach the gospel.
