Acts 3:11-4:20 is such an inspiring passage of Scripture. Acts 4:20 sums up, for me, what I hope is the resounding testimony from my lips until the day I die.
“We are unable to stop speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
“Unable.” Incapable. Powerless and helpless against the life-giving gospel message flowing from my mouth. Stone me. Shoot me. Hang me. Crucify me. I am “unable” to stop speaking about what I’ve seen and heard. Christian, how magnificent is the work you have seen God do in your life?! Is it not overwhelming?! Does it not capture your soul and overflow from the depths of your heart?!
Evangelism starts here. It begins as the overflow of a redeemed soul… unable to stop speaking about the grace that wrought life from a stone-cold corpse of a man. Incapable of muting the praises of Almighty God that flow from the lips of a sinner saved by grace. Powerless against the outward flow of an inward change that reached down into the pits of Hell and scandalously snatched my unworthy soul from its condemning grip.
Stop speaking about Jesus? Stop sharing what He’s done for me? Stop proclaiming the good news of salvation for all who would call on His name and come to Him in repentance and faith?
Nope. Can’t do it. Impossible.
Grace and Peace,
