But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:19-20)
Have you seen & heard about Christ and from Christ?
Then sing today!
Have a song in your heart that worships Christ. Sing out loud the song God has put on your heart. Sing in the shower, sing in your car on the way to work, sing at your cubicle when you are about your monotonous work but realize that you serve a God who could never be described as monotonous. Sing when you’re in the depths of despair, even when your heart is breaking, because Christ made himself nothing, giving up the grandeurs of heaven for the darkness of this earth. Sing because the Holy Spirit enables you to.
Then speak today!
Speak to others about the Christ. Tell them that even though they have no desire to know God, God makes himself known to them in his Word. Tell them the story of Jesus, who loved them in their wickedness. Tell them that it is easier for them to love the murderer on death row than it was for God to love them. Speak the gospel. Let it exude from the core of your being.
Who cares who wants to shut us up, whether he be someone with authority to kill my body or someone who would no longer associate with me because I sing and speak about Christ.
This life is too short to not exalt Christ in all our song and all our speech.
Peter and John were compelled to speak of the things they had seen and heard, because they were too marvelous not to speak about.
Pour forth Christ from your lips, and enjoy your day.
