Nothing to Say

Re:Verse reading–Acts 4:5-31 (day two) 

And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say in reply. vs. 14

Is your witness like this? I confess, mine rarely is, but what a beautiful story. Those whose hearts were cold toward the gospel were determined not to hear it, but the testimony of Peter and John coupled with their actions did not leave any room for dispute. They had no glaring fallacies to point out regarding their message. The evidence of the healing miracle was leaping around beside them. They simply had nothing to say.

We may not see all of our efforts end in the conversion of thousands, but may our prayer be that the world will have nothing on us. Nothing to hold over us. May our love and compassion be so clear that they simply cannot speak. I am praying for your testimony to be strong today. Will you pray for mine? There are many watching, and God is at work.

One thought on “Nothing to Say”

  1. I have no doubts that some of those who witnessed the miracles were amazed. Others were doubtful. And still others were confused. We see these reactions in everything we do. Good, bad or in doubts perceptions!!

    Human nature tends to question everything that is not scientific. Even to today, they don’t even believe in natural plant-based medicines or God’s medicines to help with their illnesses or to help enhance their overall health and well-being. People have their own mindset of what works or does not work and are not willing to open their hearts for trying new things that have no harms to their bodies. They believe in scientific-base research and findings! Changing a mindset requires a revolution!!

    I am not surprised ?if people don’t want to hear about Jesus’ miracles. They are not the beneficiaries or have no needs for immediate intervention. In general, most people tend to believe when they see with their own eyes. But for some, marketing and reaching out can help transform their hearts, souls and minds.

    One by one, and through exposure of Scripture and of miracles performed by Jesus, I do think Christians may be able to convince non-believers Jesus was God and was an extraordinary man of God. He came to save mankind, not demons!

    Miracles happen every day. There are so many people who follow Jesus’ humanity and humanitarianism and have made a difference. We see God at work with respect to Hurricane Harvey and Irma. Many great stories of caring, loving and compassion.

    I pray that we all will continue to follow His extraordinary examples to help those in need and to give what we can, and in the cultural framework that we are comfortable with. I pray for God’s intervention and provide all of us the opportunities to use our spiritual skills and talents to make a difference in our surroundings. Our hearts will drive our actions. Go with your heart, your passion and what God has given and provided. May you all have a Blessed day!
