Jesus shows us how to grow the kingdom of God.

Joh 21:5 Jesus asked them, “Children, you don’t have any fish, do you?”They answered him, “No.”
Joh 21:6 He told them, “Throw the net on the right hand side of the boat, and you’ll catch some.” So they threw it out and were unable to haul it in because it was so full of fish.

JESUS, No Other Name But JESUS.

Act 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
KJV

1)Act 4:12 “En ningún otro hay salvación, porque no hay otro nombre bajo el cielo dado a los hombres, en el cual podamos ser salvos.” NBLH 2)Act 4:12 Il n’y a de salut en aucun autre; car il n’y a sous le ciel aucun autre nom qui ait été donné parmi les hommes, par lequel nous devions être sauvés. FLS 3)Act 4:12 En de zaligheid is in geen Anderen; want er is ook onder den hemel geen andere Naam, Die onder de mensen gegeven is, door Welken wij moeten zalig worden. DSV

They made Peter and John stand before all the people. They asked them over and over, “How did you make this crippled man well? What power did you use? By whose authority did you do this?”
Then Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit and said to them, “Rulers of the people and you older leaders,
are you questioning us today about what we did to help this crippled man? Are you asking us what made him well?
We want all of you and all the people of Israel to know that this man was made well by the power of Jesus Christ from Nazareth. You nailed Jesus to a cross, but God raised him from death. This man was crippled, but he is now well. He is able to stand here before you because of the power of Jesus!
Jesus is ‘the stone that you builders thought was not important. But this stone has become the cornerstone.’
Jesus is the only one who can save people. His name is the only power in the world that has been given to save anyone. We must be saved through him!
The Jewish leaders understood that Peter and John had no special training or education. But they also saw that they were not afraid to speak. So the leaders were amazed. They also realized that Peter and John had been with Jesus.
They saw the crippled man standing there beside the apostles. They saw that he was healed, so they could say nothing against the apostles.
The Jewish leaders told them to leave the council meeting. Then the leaders talked to each other about what they should do.
They said, “What shall we do with these men? Everyone in Jerusalem knows about the miracle they did as a sign from God. It’s too obvious. We can’t say it didn’t happen.
But we must make them afraid to talk to anyone again using that name. Then this problem will not spread among the people.
