For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. Acts 4:20
Everyone speaks about the things they’ve seen and heard. Each person talks about their experiences and passions.
Some hold on to past the past like its the present. They keep close at hand those things that have made a great impact on their life. This isn’t a bad thing when those past experiences are good. But many hold on to tragedy and heartache. They refuse to move forward with life.
The apostles all lived with wonderful days and days of tragedy. Peter could have talked about fishing all day. Matthew could have spoken about being a tax collector. The others could do much the same but they chose to talk about what Jesus was doing in their lives – today!
If Jesus has changed your life then don’t dwell in the sinful life you once were – talk about the changed life that you are now!
