Acts 4:1-22

A famous hymn says, "Man of sorrows, what a name, for the Son of God who came".  it goes on to say..."Bearing shame and scoffing rude, in my place condemned He stood".  Nailed to a cross between two thieves, counted as a criminal!!  Put to open shame and ridicule, given a criminal's trial.  Scoured as a criminal, mocked as a criminal, punched and spat upon as criminal, condemned as a criminal to die the death of a criminal.  Led through the streets as a criminal, they led Him out to crucify Him!!  If this is the path that the Saviour trod, how is it that we seek for another?  Not a crown of thorns, but a crown of gold; not the strikes of sinners,  but the strokes of friends; not the piercing words of our enemies, but the soothing words of peace!!

This message sets the question squarely at the feet of the Christian, are you willing to bear the reproach that comes with owning the name of Jesus Christ?  To keep silent is not an option!!
