The Power of Resurrection and Obedience
We need to believe in the Power of the resurrection! In Acts 3, Peter and John were brought before the whole religious council - the High Priest, his kindred, the rulers, elders and scribes - for questioning, "By what power, by what name have you healed this lame man?" And Peter replied, "If we are being examined about this man and how he was healed, let it be known to you and to the whole of Israel that by the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth whom God raised from the dead, even by Him does this man stand, totally healed!" The religious leaders then responded, "Did we not strictly command you that you should not preach in this Name? But you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine!" But in v29 Peter and the other Apostles answered, "We ought to obey God rather than men." Our allegiance is to Jesus, the Son of the living God, who was raised from the dead; it is Him we must obey!
