11/16 – Peter Released From Prison

Acts 12:6-19

God foils Herod’s plan to have Peter executed. This is a wonderful story about how God delivered Peter from prison and how he comes to the house of Mary where many of the Christians were gathered together praying.

Let’s not get caught up in the excitement and forget that James was beheaded. Also Herod executes the soldiers under whose watch Peter had “escaped”.

What does all this teach us about following Jesus in a world where people might be antagonistic towards Christianity?
