To put this scripture into perspective we need to see the context of it here; in Acts 5: 29-32.
It says this:Acts 5: 29-32
29 But Peter and the apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than any human authority. 30 The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead after you killed him by hanging him on a cross. 31 Then God put him in the place of honor at his right hand as Prince and Savior. He did this so the people of Israel would repent of their sins and be forgiven. 32 We are witnesses of these things and so is the Holy Spirit, who is given by God to those who obey him.”
Peter and the apostles were arrested by the high priest and his officials, who were Sadducees. However, they were released by an angel who told them, “Go to the Temple and give the people this message of life!”
The high council didn’t like that the apostles were teaching in the Temple and had the arrested again and brought back to stand trial. The High Council reminded the apostles that they were instructed to never teach again, about Jesus.
Then, Peter and the apostles replied with the message in verses 29-32.
The apostles are trying to get it into the council’s thick heads that Jesus is the authority, not them. Jesus is the Almighty Powerful God. The sinners need to repent and be forgiven.
Being at God’s right hand is a very important place to be. I know we get bogged down with the concept of the Trinity. The Triune God. I know it’s confusing for many. The main thing to remember is that God is forgiving and He offers us the chance to accept His forgiveness through Jesus. Jesus is the ultimate Gift. HE is our Savior born through a virgin, Mary. That in and of itself is a miracle.
What will you do with the miracle of Jesus, our Savior, this Christmas? Me?
You see it right here. I’m doing my best to share HIM with everyone. He’s the light of the world, He’s the bread of life.
Your turn! GO!
