Acts 5:27-29 (ESV) And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest questioned them, 28 saying, “We strictly charged you not to teach in this name, yet here you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching, and you intend to bring this man’s blood upon us.” 29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.
An Unleashed life is more concerned about obeying God, than man. And for these boys it was serious stuff. Here in Canada what would happen? A slap on the wrist, some stern words…but back in their day it could mean death. I recently read an article of a high school student who was suspended for uttering the name of Jesus. The same people would dare not suspend a student for speaking the name of Mohammed but Jesus…they fear that Name, because the demons know the power associated with it. They know one day, their knees will bow before that Name. It is the only Name man must give an account and for that reason, unregenerate man tries to muzzle the Name. But I for one must shout it out. I must tell the world. I must let everyone know the saving power and grace associated with the Name that is above every name. Will you join me?
