The men whom you put in prison are in the temple area and are teaching the people (Acts 5:25)
All of us struggle these days with acquiring a certain sense of security in the midst of much terrorist activity so prevalent in our world lately. We are aware of mighty forces like terrorist groups engaged in fighting super-world powers. Do we have faith in these military forces that somehow promise us safety and security? If we do, maybe this is a false kind of security. Look at Peter and John and their imprisonment by the powerful forces of the Sanhedrin and the police force guarding them. Notice when the temple guards have to spring into action they do it without any show of force. Who brought about this peaceful submission? Let’s have faith in Jesus, who delivers us from all evil and terror in the world.
