A NOTICEABLE DIFFERENCE
There should be some obvious changes in our lives after we have had an encounter with God.. It could be the way we love, the way we serve, or the way we forgive. Others know and see it, our lives show it, but most of all, we know it. In Acts 4:13, we find these words:
“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.”
Peter and John were common men whose lives had been changed. When people saw the boldness of Peter and John, they recognized they had been with Jesus. They were different, because they spoke with authority, holy boldness and wisdom even though they were not formally trained. Peter and John boldly declared the blessings of the Lord. Prayerfully, the noticeable difference that the people saw in Peter and John has also been seen in us now that we have given our lives over to Christ. Praise God today for the difference He has made in our lives!
