Why do we keep silent?

Dragged before the rulers for healing a crippled beggar and preaching a politically incorrect doctrine, Peter and John were commanded to no longer speak in the name of Jesus.  They replied, “We cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20)

Yet many church members will not talk about Jesus under any circumstances. Perhaps it is because they have not witnessed life-transforming acts of kindness that bring healing to crippled beggars in the name of Jesus. Perhaps they themselves are still crippled.

If a cripple is healed in the name of Jesus, won’t he tell everyone he knows? Why don’t more of us testify?
