Welcome back everyone. Happy Friday to you. Today we are in Acts 3
The first thing that jumps out at me from this passage is their boldness to tell this man to get up and walk. That took some amazing courage and humility to do. What if God didn't heal the man? What if they say that and the man can't get up? It appears that those doubts never crept into their minds, they were sure that Jesus would heal him. Why don't we live with that kind of faith and boldness today? I want that kind of living faith.
My favorite part in this chapter comes in the second section of it. Peter is speaking to the crowd and he says, "It is Jesus' name and the faith that comes through him that has given this complete healing to him, as you can all see." (Acts 3:16) May we never forget the simple, yet profound truth found in that statement by Peter. It is in Jesus that we find our complete healing. We find ourselves healed physically, emotionally, and spiritually when we surrender everything to him.
