Acts 5: 18-20 ” They arrested the Apostles and put them in the public jail. But during the night an angel of the Lord opened the doors of the jail and brought them out. ‘Go, stand in the Temple courts,’ he said, ‘and tell the people the full message of this new life.’ “

Even though the Disciples had lived, traveled, and witnessed miracles by Jesus –  this was now becoming tough times.  Jesus was gone, they were on their own, and  preaching the Good News was becoming more and more difficult.  They had been thrown into jail…again, when an angel broke them out.  But rather than telling them to flee for their lives, he commanded them to go right back to the Temple and speak.  How many of us would have the same kind of boldness and courage to go right back into enemy territory?  They realized  the life-giving Word they preached overshadowed the momentary fear they felt.
