“But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors and, leading them out, said, Go, take your stand in the temple courts and declare to the people the whole doctrine concerning this Life, the eternal life which Christ revealed.” Acts 5:19-20 Amplified
We see in our verse today that the persecution of the early church started early. Our prior verse told us that the reason was because the religious leaders of the day were jealous.
This verse can apply to us today as we see the persecution of today’s church. When we got saved an angel of the Lord opened the prison doors of our heart and freed us from the slavery of sin. So now we must go and take our stand in the temple courts, the court of our culture, and declare to the people eternal life through Christ. We must in this day take a stand for God and what He says in His word.
