The Boldness of Peter

Peter denied the Lord three times, fearing the people who sought to put the Lord to death. Then a wonderful change came over Peter. The Bible shows him boldly confessing the Lord, not fearing the people who had killed the Lord.
In Acts chapters 2, 3, and 4, Peter boldly confronted the murderers of the Lord. Consider how he began his short speech in chapter 4, “Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, ‘Rulers of the people and elders of Israel: If we this day are judged for a good deed done to a helpless man, by what means he has been made well, let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole” (Acts 4:8-10).
Wow! May the Lord make all of us as bold as Peter!
