The Increasing Kingdom

 

Wherever Jesus went He effectively brought kingdom impact & influence with messages & ministry that demonstrated the supernatural; and He commissioned His disciples to do the same. But in Acts 4, they were threatened with horrible things if they continued to teach and minister in Jesus name. Faced with dark, demonic religious resistance they knew the key to kingdom increase would require more than just greater effort on their part so they gathered together & prayed this way; Now, Lord, look on their threats, and grant to Your servants that with all boldness they may speak Your word, by stretching out Your hand to heal, and that signs and wonders may be done through the name of Your holy Servant Jesus. Rather than backing down they made healing, signs and wonders central to their gospel message and turned the world upside down. The world is waiting for the church to do the same today.
