No special training // 20-04-23

“”There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.” 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 recognised them as men who had been with Jesus.” Acts 4‬:‭12‬-‭13‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I just want to encourage someone today that it’s not any special training that qualifies you as a Christian, but whether you trust in and spend time with Jesus! The disciples were ordinary people, but they were recognised as those who had been with Jesus. Christ in me, the hope of glory is what changes ordinary to extraordinary and brings a boldness to our faith and a real purpose to our lives! Lord, I often feel like I don’t know enough or I’m not qualified enough. But thank You that it’s Your wisdom I receive, Your power that works through me, and Your grace that is enough, as I spend time with You! Give me that same confidence and boldness today to live and speak like Peter and John did. Amen 👆🏼🙏🏼
