Being with Jesus
In Acts 4:13 it says, “When the Council saw the boldness of Peter and John and could see that they were obviously uneducated non-professionals, they were amazed and realized what being with Jesus had done for them.”
Sometimes we can be reading along and something will just jump off the page at us! And this is it – “they were amazed and realized what being with Jesus had done for them.”
This has really got me thinking. What would happen if we all spent more time with Jesus? More time in His Word! More time talking to Him and listening! How that would change us! Men who had no formal education, no real standing in the community, pretty much nobodies became bold and confident! Men who had been selfish and only thinking of themselves became men of compassion! Men who previously had no real ambition or goals became passionate about sharing the Good News with everyone they came in contact with! They literally turned the world upside down, because they spent time with Jesus!
