Acts 4:11-13 11He is "'the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone'. 12Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved." 13When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

At the temple, Peter and John spotted a disabled man begging. Peter informed him that while he had no cash to give him, he did have the power to heal people in the name of Jesus. He helped the man stand up by taking him by the hand. The man praised God while running around and bouncing up and down. That sparked a stir and attracted a sizable crowd. The religious authorities imprisoned Peter and John overnight. They hauled them out for questioning the following day. When questioned about the miracle, Peter—the same man who had denied knowing Jesus—boldly asserted that the cripple could walk because of faith in the name of the guy who had been killed by the religious establishment. He supported his claim with Scripture.

Then Jesus said something quite audacious: No one else can save from sin. God has only provided the name of Jesus as a means of salvation. Anyone can be rescued solely via the power given to Jesus. There is only one route available. Jesus made it quite plain that He is the only way to the Father. He proclaimed Himself to be the entrance for all people.

Galileans weren't known for having a lot of education, like Peter. They were more well-known for their violent behavior. The religious elders questioned what impact Jesus had on Peter and John since they noticed that they were speaking with tremendous boldness and eloquence. They were unaware that the Holy Spirit was using them to speak for Jesus while he was absent. It doesn't matter what your background is, brother or sister. Jesus can give you the confidence to speak up when it's necessary in any circumstance. Peter was aware that his words would fall short. He allowed the Holy Spirit to respond to their query. The forceful response was convincing since it was just like His Savior.

Think about it: Do we rely on the Holy Spirit's power to speak through you?

The Watchman

In the Bible, the Watchman is responsible for keeping watch and warning others of potential danger or impending judgment. The role is mentioned several times in the Old Testament, particularly in the book of Ezekiel. In Ezekiel 33:6, God says to the prophet Ezekiel, "But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand."
