Don’t you love reading His Word and finding something you’d never noticed–or at least never considered–before? In my reading a few years ago, I found a such a verse.
In Acts 4, Peter and John had been called before the Council by the priests, the captain of the Temple guard, and some Saducees because they were healing and preaching the resurrection of the dead. They were thrown in jail.
The next morning the leaders decided that in order to keep Peter and John from spreading their message, they would warn them not to speak to anyone in the name of Jesus again. And here’s where it gets exciting:
But Peter and John replied, “Do you think God wants us to obey you rather than him? We cannot stop telling about everything we have seen and heard.” Acts 4:19-20 NIV
“We cannot stop telling…”
What about me? What about you? Can we say that? Can we say that we can’t stop telling the Good News of Jesus?
I recently heard that we should have our testimony ready in a variety of forms, to be delivered at a moment’s notice. We should have a 30-second “elevator pitch” testimony, a 2-minute testimony, a longer one, and a fully-written, fleshed-out version.
After all, we have the Good News of the mercy, grace, and love of Jesus. We cannot stop telling everyone about it!
At Christian Communicators Conference, it’s our goal to help women develop and grow their speaking ministries and share the Good News of Jesus Christ. Would you let us help you? Registration for our 2016 conference at The Billy Graham Training Center at The Cove will open next week on March 15. Space is limited to only 30 ladies. We’d love to partner with you to share His Great Name around the world!
Grace and peace,
