Whenever and wherever the Gospel is proclaimed, God's people face the potential for opposition. Some opposition is in the form of verbal and societal ostracism. In others, this opposition takes on a form threatening the very lives of the believer.
After healing a man lame from birth, Peter preaches the Gospel to the crowd present. His message, however, was interrupted by the Jewish authorities as they arrested not only Peter and James, but the recipient of this miraculous sign.
In studying Peter's and John's response to this opposition we find a model for how we can respond to such opposition; a response that is centered upon the Gospel message that resulted in his arrest in the first place.
Thank you for listening to today's message. May you be blessed through the teaching of God's Word.
