A daily devotional through the Bible speaking with God as Adam and Eve may have in the garden east of Eden. Our website http://alittlewalkwithgod.com
Peter addresses his modern world. Many of his day assumed they would not like this new Christian religion because of its freedom from the rules established by Moses centuries before. So they fought against Peter and his compatriots. They assumed faith in Jesus as the living God-Man, born of woman and of God, could not be who He showed them He was and could not do the things He did even when they saw it with their own eyes or heard it from the lips of eyewitnesses.
Many were afraid of what others might think of them if they abandoned the religion they pledged their allegiance to as children or young adults and feared the isolation from their old religious order more than they feared the living God, as His Spirit spoke to them convicting and convincing them of sin. I know it’s hard to believe, but it’s true. Unfortunately, the same conditions exist today.
