Am I an amusement?

June 16

Daily Bible Reading: Acts 2:1 – 13

Verse of the Day: Acts 2:13 – “But others mocking said, They are filled with new wine.”

We sometimes are fearful about sharing Jesus with those around us because of many reasons. One reason is that we are afraid some will make fun of us. No one likes being the brunt of someone else’s amusement.

In our verse today, we see that on the Day of Pentecost, the disciples were made the mocking accusations of many. Yet, the very thing that they were accused of was not a reality. They were not filled with wine, they were filled with the Holy Spirit. And, being filled with the power from on high that John the Baptist and Jesus both predicted (as well as the Old Testament Scriptures), they were sharing the message of Jesus boldly in the very place where He had been crucified.

Today, let us put aside our fears and be willing to stand and deliver the truth of the only way of salvation. Trust in Jesus Christ.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, dwelling in me, help me to be bold and share the Good News today.
