“We gave you strict orders…, yet…” The apostles were ordered not to preach about Jesus but they preached anyway. Good thing! If they hadn’t, we wouldn’t be Christians today! They had courage and tenacity. Many martyrs would follow in their footsteps even to the current day in places in Africa, South America, and Asia. Do we have the passion and courage to speak out for our faith? Let us pray for the courage to speak out boldly and live our faith boldly.
