And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly. Acts 4:31 (NIV)
One of my joys when I pastored a church with a signboard on the main highway was to find bold statements that we could put up each week as a message for the thousands of motorists who drove by. Here’s the second post listing some of the pithy sayings we used on the signboard:
