Vital signs- Tuesday, January 18th, 2022



“Then Peter said, ‘Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.’”

(Acts 3:6)


The apostles were not preaching facts about a dead Christ. That’s the only way you can explain their boldness. How do you explain the Early Church? How do you explain the fact that Peter, the man who was talking, was eventually crucified? Tradition holds that when they were getting ready to crucify Peter, Peter said, “Look, don’t crucify me right side up, crucify me upside down. I’m not worthy to even be crucified as my Lord was crucified.” This was the same man who denied Jesus three times on the night He was arrested. Where did Peter get that boldness? Through the risen Christ, Peter had no fear of death. Of course, he didn’t want to be crucified, but he had no fear of death because he knew his Savior was alive.

• How does it give you boldness to remember that Jesus has conquered death?

• What would look different in your life if you lived in this boldness each day?


Take specific steps today to act in the name of Jesus with boldness because of the truth of His resurrection.
