Are you a slow learner? You and me and Peter too, we all suffer from the same problem.
So Peter is in jail and gets a surprising angel release. (See Acts 12:6-10). All this happens and ‘then …THEN! … Peter ‘came to himself.’ (Verse 11)
We see it again in verse 12, ‘when this had dawned on him!’ Duh! What is Peter’s problem?
Don’t feel bad for Peter, because his friends didn’t get it either. Well, nobody but Rhoda.
Peter knocked at the outer entrance, and a servant named Rhoda came to answer the door. When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed she ran back without opening it and exclaimed, “Peter is at the door!”
“You’re out of your mind,” they told her. When she kept insisting that it was so, they said, “It must be his angel.”
But Peter kept on knocking… (Acts 12:13-16, NIV)
Friends, when we finally get it and share it, not everyone will ‘get’ it. Please be like Peter. Once you get it, share it. Some will listen and some will not. Just keep knocking on their hearts with Jesus until they answer the door.
Prayer – Lord, give us the courage to share everything you are. In Christ’s name. Amen
