Lent 2009 (26) – Just cannot stop talking

Then the Sanhedrin called them in again and commanded them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John replied, “Judge for yourselves whether it is right in God’s sight to obey you rather than God. For we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” Acts 4:18-20

Just occasionally we have an experience that we can’t stop telling people about. Perhaps it’s the birth of a grandchild, a successful exam result, the engagement of one of our children, a job promotion or passing our driving test. Quite rightly, we want to share the good news with others. Sometimes, too, we have an experience of God like that. The apostles did.

They had seen and experienced the power of God at work and nothing was going to stop them talking about it – not even a direct order from the authorities! Wouldn’t it be great if our church was a place where the love and the power of God were so evident that we just couldn’t stop talking about it? The love and the power of Go, that is!
