Peter, John, & Ben Franklin

"Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus." (Acts 4:13)

They recognized them as having been with Jesus.  No doubt about it--Jesus changes us!  He changes fear to faith! He turns persecution into power!  Jesus transforms weakness into wonder.  The key to this miraculous turn is, "having been with Jesus".

Have you been with Jesus this week? Or are you just getting by in your own power?  Your ordinary can become extraordinary in the hands of Jesus. 

"And to know that God governs in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayers, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him, is, indeed, a powerful regulator of human conduct.”  --Benjamin Franklin
