The Early Church Had Boldness In Defense of the Truth

September 14th, 2013

LarryMiles1The Sanhedrin commanded Peter and John not  to  preach the resurrection of Jesus under the threat of  punishment. The Apostles possessed  boldness  in defense  of the Gospel.  They were ready to go anywhere and everywhere to announce the Good News. What is the  Good News (the Gospel)? 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 tells that the  gospel consists of the  fact that Jesus died and  was  buried and that  He  arose from the dead. Let’s look to the  boldness of the  Apostles and be  strong in the strength of God’s Word.

We must  know what  we  believe and why. We  must believe that God’s  word is  infallible and  inerrant. If we  know what we  believe and  why we can have boldness in presenting the Gospel to a lost  world.

Jude 3 reads as follows, “Beloved,while I was making every effort to write to you about  our common salvation, I  felt the necessity to write to you, appealing that you contend earnestly for the faith which was once and for all delivered  to the saints.”
