An Understandable Conclusion

Acts 4:1-12

Peter and John had once been tentative. They did not know how to appropriately respond when Jesus was on the mountain with Moses and Elijah. They struggled with the crowds and children. They tried to guess who would betray Jesus. They fled the scene of His arrest. They hid after Jesus was crucified. However, after Jesus rose again, their hesitation went away. The early chapters of Acts assure us that the apostles’ questioning was gone.

Instead, they became bold and courageous, confident in speech and theologically certain. The resurrection removed their doubt. They became convinced that Jesus is the Savior of the world, and by faith, we can share their certainty. God’s Word and our experience of His grace help us to affirm Christ’s statement, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6b).

“Salvation is found in no one else” (Acts 4:12). Thankfully, it is available to anyone who will come to Christ in faith.

    The Holy Spirit did it. Acts 2:4, Acts 2:16-21

    You are right, Art — the Spirit removed their doubt, hesitation and questioning! Praise Him!
