So they arrested them and put them in custody until the next day, for it was already evening.v4

Not often will our witnessing send us to prison as it did Peter and John, but sometimes living the life of a disciple is a risky business. We might be willing to endure one night in prison if we brought 2,000 people to Christ, but shouldn’t we be able to   suffer for even one person? Witnessing of faith makes us vulnerable; maybe this is why we stay with other Christians for safety, however Jesus instructs us to go into the world and be vulnerable, to be salt and light.

Whatever the risk, know that nothing for God is ever wasted.

Lord help me be salt and light in your world. Amen
