They Ceased Not

Acts 5:42 KJV
And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.

...daily in the temple...they ceased not...

This is significant on a number of levels but I think perhaps most significant is the circumstance. They ceased not to teach and preach
• After being put in prison for teaching and preaching.
• After being commanded not to teach and preach and
• After being beaten for teaching and preaching.

God's hand had been upon them and had released them from the jail. That would have encouraged them but it would not have reduced the pain of beating or the threat of the priest.

We are so easily dissuaded from witnessing for the Lord.

Would to God we would get some fire in us to be out daily and in every house.
