Their Own Company

Their Own Company
 
Acts 4:23 “And being let go they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.”
Peter and John had just been released from the county jail. They had been interrogated and intstructed by their captors, not to preach Jesus anymore. Now that they have been set at liberty where would they go and what would they do? They would go to their own company. They kept good company and that is why they kept going for Jesus! Where do you go when you have been mistreated? Where do you go when you are down? Where do you go when there is trouble? Good company will make the difference every time. Their company loved Jesus, their company shared burdens, and their company looked to God for wisdom and strength not alcohol or dope! Every Sunday morning, their company worshipped the Lord, every time believers assembled for church their company was there. You will become like the company you keep. When I am out of town I try to find an independent Baptist church to go to because that’s my company! They teach the Bible and win souls to Jesus. They are zealous about the work of God and I need that to keep my fire burning! Remember the drug dealer has his company, the gangster has his company, the business man has his company, and the victorious Christian has his company! May the Lord help us to keep good company!
