The Sermon 1199773311
BOLDNESS IS Behavior BORN OUT OF Belief.
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers and elders of our people, 9 are we being questioned today because we’ve done a good deed for a crippled man? Do you want to know how he was healed? 10 Let me clearly state to all of you and to all the people of Israel that he was healed by the powerful name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, the man you crucified but whom God raised from the dead. Acts 4:8-10 NLT
The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13 NLT
1) GOD GIVES Ordinary PEOPLE EXTRAORDINARY BOLDNESS.
…[The leaders] could see that [Peter and John] were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures… Acts 4:13 NLT
2) YOUR BOLDNESS WILL Amaze THE WORLD.
