no-experience-required“The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus.” (Acts of the Apostles 4:13 NLT)

There is no special training or experience required to do God’s work. He chooses the most ordinary of people. If you stood in a court room today, would they be amazed at your boldness? Would they recognize you as one who had been with Jesus? Do everything God has called you to do with boldness and confidence, yes, you’ll have accusers but they will not be able to deny that you’ve been with Jesus! All you need is Jesus, no experience required!

Stephen’s Gate is a weekly devotion that purposes to encourage people to live the victorious life God has called them to. Stephen grew up in a Christian home and was raised in Church. As a young boy he was very shy and never wanted to be the center of attention, however, he always had the desire to preach and minister to others. God called him into ministry in his late twenties and he has enjoyed every minute of it. Stephen previously served as an Assistant Pastor in Fort Fairfield, Maine before moving to Georgia. Stephen and Kristen have been married for 11 years and have two beautiful girls, Abigail and Sydney.
