“Obedience to God comes before obedience to man.”

Acts 5:27-33

Peter and the disciples are a good example of people who speak up for Jesus and they were not afraid or shy to talk about him. Instead, Peter glorified God’s name and he responded to the Holy Spirit. He stood up for what he believed in and he also showed us that he was obedient to Jesus and his teachings.

We can act like Peter too by speaking about Jesus to others, sharing our faith, doing the right things in our workplace or anywhere we are. Sometimes, it is not easy to go against the crowd but we can follow our instincts based on what is right or wrong. To do so, we need to stay connected with Jesus by praying so that we are confident in him and have the courage to stand firm in our faith. Do we share Jesus with others daily? Are we obedient to Jesus and his teachings?
