Topic: Jesus's Replica. Pt Two [25/10/2016]
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. Acts 4:13. Read: Acts 4:7-14
We saw yesterday that one of the ways to becoming more and more like our heavenly Father is to spend quality time with Him. We prosper in all our endeavours when we make His presence our constant habitation. The presence of the Lord impacts upon you unusual boldness that men can't resist.
Peter and John are better examples. Mark 3:14 And he ordained twelve, that they should be with him, and that he might send them forth to preach. When God wrought a special miracle through them, the authority questioned them, as they tried to explain, the men (from their speech) discovered they were unlearned. But they saw one thing in them - Jesus. They could see through them the person of Jesus. And the miracle was undeniable. If men can't see the image of Christ in you without first telling them that you're a child of God, it means, your relationship with Him is shallow.
* Peter and John didn't say, "do you know who I am" like some of us do. Get it right with God within and men will see it without.
