Freedom of Religion

In America, the land of religious freedom, no one likes to think about being persecuted for faith in Jesus Christ.  But the Apostles were persecuted from the very beginning.  They were told by religious leaders, who had physically seen and heard Jesus teach, no to teach and preach in Jesus' name.  But the Holy Spirit was with the Apostles and gave them power and strength to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The religious leaders hoped to see this new zealous group fizzle out as others had done before.  One wise leader said in Acts 5:39, "If it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it; lest haply ye be found even to fight against God."  Seriously, how far can you get fighting against God?  He has unlimited resources, and has proven that He can lift up another to preach in place of one persecuted and even killed in his service.  God is on our side; are you on His side?
