OUR DAILY BREAD 2023 DEVOTIONAL WAS WRITTEN BY OUR DAILY BREAD MINISTRIES
Our Daily Bread Devotional, 8th Of July 2023
TOPIC: Free in the Spirit
TEXT: They were unschooled, ordinary men, . . . and they took note that these men had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE & INSIGHT: Acts 4:12–22
BIBLE IN A YEAR: Job 36–37, Acts 15:22–41
Neither Orville nor Wilbur Wright had a pilot’s license. Neither had gone to college. They were bicycle mechanics with a dream and the courage to try to fly. On December 17, 1903, they took turns piloting their Wright Flyer on four separate flights. The longest lasted only a minute, but it changed our world forever.
Neither Peter nor John had a preaching license. Neither had gone to seminary. They were fishermen who, filled with the Spirit of Jesus, courageously proclaimed the good news: “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).
The Wright brothers’ neighbors didn’t immediately appreciate their accomplishment. Their hometown newspaper didn’t believe their story, and said that even if true, the flights were too brief to be significant. It took several more years of flying and refining their planes before the public recognized what they had truly done.
The religious leaders didn’t like Peter and John, and they ordered them to stop telling others about Jesus. Peter said, No way. “We cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard” (v. 20).
You may not be on the approved list. Perhaps you’re scorned by those who are. No matter. If you have the Spirit of Jesus, you’re free to live boldly for Him!
REFLECT & PRAY:-
What task or person causes you to feel inadequate? How might you rely on the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit to step into that challenge today?
Jesus, I’m Yours. Use me in whatever way You want.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
