About that time Herod the king laid violent hands on some who belonged to the church. He killed James the brother of John with the sword, and when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. . . So Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church. (Acts 12:1-5 ESV)
Let’s be honest. Most of us are pessimist. Our outlook on the future is bleaker then our faded memories of the past. We sometimes then mask our fear with escapism, “God come and get us out of here!” And in moments of honesty we look around and wonder what is going on. Has God gone on vacation? Are we being judged? Did something slip by Him?
This week in Acts we will witness the final curtain call for Peter. He has been the predominate figure throughout the first half of this book. But now through miraculous circumstances, he will exit. But as he does, we get to see a glimpse of who is really in charge, in both difficulties and triumphs. Take a few minutes to read through Acts 12. It’s an important and steadying reminder in this season of uncertainty. Then plan to join us on Sunday.
