They ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

I love the Word of God and besides the Gospels, especially enjoy the Book of Acts.

Today Acts Chapter 5 tells how by the hands of the apostles  many signs and wonders were done among the people.

This caused the religious leaders to put the apostles in jail but an angel freed them in the night and they continued to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

While standing a second time before the council, Peter said, "We ought to obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree. Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him."

May we too have the same boldness and courage to obey God rather than men!
