Scripture of the Day - May 4, 2012

Acts 4:19 But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.

Who do you think you should listen to...God or the peer pressure of this world? The apostles were under the same pressure. They had just healed a man in the NAME OF JESUS. The Pharisees couldn't deny the miracle but let's just look at their response...Acts 4:16 Saying, What shall we do to these men? for that indeed a notable miracle hath been done by them is manifest to all them that dwell in Jerusalem; and we cannot deny it. 17 But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. 18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.
They could not deny the miracle. The miracle didn't bother them. It was the NAME OF JESUS that bothered them. That same spirit is in the world today. It hates the name of Jesus.
So I ask, should we listen to the peer pressure of this world instead of God? And I will answer, of course not!
