Judges and the Judged
February 26, 2021
As world continues to change by becoming more post-Christian and adapting to a post-pandemic world, the church finds itself in a period where change is the new normal. For this season, we are looking at the book of Acts to remind ourselves how the early church followed God as God led the church into the future that was unfolding before them.
In Acts 4:1-31, Peter and John find themselves jailed and standing trial for an act of compassion. As strange as it sounds, this is relatively common. Those who upset the dominant order of the day, even through an act of kindness, are called into question. Those with authority take the role of judges, and those out of line are the judged. But Jesus flips all of this upside down by assuming the role as both the judge and the judged.
