One of the popular Bible stories after the Gospels is found in Luke’s letter called Acts. In chapter 3, Peter and John are going to pray at the temple when they cross paths with a man who has been lame since birth. His encounter with Peter and John ends in a way that he probably never imagined.
Peter says to the man: “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” The power of God flows through Peter and John and the man is instantly healed. What does he do?
Walking and leaping and praising God he goes into the temple to worship. People see him; he is a living and breathing testimony to the power of God. They are amazed, Peter and John testify of Jesus, lives are changed, the Good News sets people from things more crippling than the man’s lameness.
Have you been healed by Jesus Christ? Can anyone tell?
