Don’t Be Silent

17 But in order that it may spread no further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to anyone in this name. ~ Acts 4:17

Whenever they tried to stunt the growth of Christianity, they tried to silence the Church. Why? Because faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. How can they believe if they have never heard? So, what does the world do?

They try to stop us from discussing religion. How? They’ve hushed us up in the schools, they’ve hushed us up in the workplace, they’ve hushed us up in government, in our malls, in our stores we can’t even say Merry Christmas because it’s politically incorrect to do so.

People often say that God doesn’t need us, so why does this matter? Paul poses this question; How can they hear if no one tells them? Sounds to me like God intended for us to be His mouthpiece. Jesus did His part. It’s our turn now.

How then can we be silent? God wants the whole world to know the way to salvation, and it’s through our preaching and our teaching. There is no other plan. None. So, don’t let them silence you; you are called to preach the good news. How would you be saved right now if someone hadn’t taught you the way of holiness? It’s time for the Church to arise and stop being intimidated and shamed into being silent while our friends, our family, and our coworkers are going to an eternity of punishment.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Don’t Be Silent.
