Bible Verses: Acts 3:1-4:20
Memory Verse: (1 Peter 3:15 - 15 But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect.)

Acts 3:1-4:20 recaps an incredible event of a lame beggar being healed outside a temple by Peter and John then walks into the temple with them. Peter and John begin to share the good news about who Jesus is before the Sadducees placed them in custody for what they were saying. A council of priest gather and ask Peter and John to stop talking about Jesus,

“But Peter and John answered them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you rather than to God, you must judge, for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:19-20)

Our testimony is a reflection of the glory of God and underlines why He alone is worthy of our submission and worship. We should always be ready to give a defense for the hope that is in us with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:15)
