Phillips: What changed the apostles?

Tuesday, April 3, 2018
    And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness.
    —Acts 4:31 (ESV)
    What changed these very ordinary men (who were such cowards that they didn’t dare stand too near the cross in case they got involved) into heroes who would stop at nothing? A swindle? Hallucination? Spooky nonsense in a darkened room? Or Somebody quietly doing what He said He’d do—walk right through death?
    What do YOU think?
    ... J. B. Phillips (1906-1982), Is God at Home?, London: Lutterworth Press, 1957, p. 36 (see the book)
    See also Acts 4:31; Luke 24:36-43; John 20:19-22; Acts 4:19-20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have changed the course of my life.
