It’s not easy to be a Christian in our modern, post-Christian society. Standing with Jesus is out of touch and makes us feel uncomfortable in our world. Yet, in some ways, that’s always been true. A story in Acts 4 is the perfect example of this. After Peter and John were told not to preach about Jesus anymore, they assembled with other Christians and prayed a prayer affirming how to face a world that threatens our faith. What they affirmed in Acts 4:24-30 is the heart of the Christian’s faith. Today we should affirm the same basic beliefs as we continue to be the church of Jesus in a hostile environment.
