Have Courage—God’s Power Prevails
Be emboldened by stories from the early Christian church in Pastor Chuck Swindoll’s series, “When God’s Strength Shines Through.” Using selections from the book of Acts, Pastor Chuck will walk us through scenes that display God’s power, highlighting that no amount of persecution can stand in the way of God’s good plans for His people.
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! … Jesus is ‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under Heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.
Acts 4:8, 12–13 (NIV)
