Audio now available for February 17, 2013 from Acts 3:1-4:22 "The Work of Jesus Continues through Ordinary, Spirit-Filled People
The healing of a lame man at the Temple gate causes a stir among all the people and a reaction from the religious authorities. The whole event is clearly the work of Jesus flowing through Peter and John. Among the people there is great rejoicing; thousands more turn to receive Jesus and follow Him. The authorities, the same ones who condemned Jesus to death just a few weeks earlier, do everything they can to put a stop to this movement but they can't help but notice something about Peter and John. Acts 4:13 says, "When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus." There are so many characteristics of Jesus plainly evident in the words, attitudes and actions of Peter and John throughout this incident! May our lives similarly be characterized by the life of Jesus and may people take notice that we too have spent time with Jesus!
