Jesus, Our Boldness
By Adrian Rogers
Peter and John were bold proclaimers of God’s truth. Acts 4:13 says, “Now when they [the rulers of the people and elders of Israel] saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marveled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.”
The government is telling us that we can’t take Jesus into the public schools. Oh yes we can, and let me tell you how.
I was returning to America from an overseas trip and discovered that U.S. Customs will not let you bring some things into this country. For instance, you can’t bring fruits, vegetables, and animal life. There was a man in front of me who had some gourmet cheese, and the inspector said, “I’m sorry, sir. You cannot bring this cheese into the country.” The man said, “I will bring it in. I’ll just rewrap it.” And then he ate it and walked right through.
Jesus is inside every believer. Maybe you haven’t been to seminary, but you have been with Jesus. That is the basis of boldness. You keep company with God the Son and He will be your boldness. You see, Jesus didn’t come to get you out of trouble; He came to get into trouble with you, and He will be with you.
