Opposition and Blessing in God’s Providence

In Acts 4-7, the Christians face a lot of opposition. This passage shows us how they handled that opposition, the threat of death, and a beating with heroic courage.

At the same time, God proves that He is not going to let anything or anyone get in the way of the Gospel going out. He intervenes not once, but twice in this text.

In the midst of it all, we learn that it takes courage to live and share in a world that will oppose the gospel. So what is courage, where did they get it, and how do we get it?

Scripture: Acts 5:12-42; Hebrews 2:10, 12:2
