Passage: Acts 3:11-26 (NIV 2011)
In Acts 2, we learned how the Holy Spirit was showered down upon the early church. The Holy Spirit is present and at work in our world today. Why are we amazed when the power of the Spirit of the Lord is displayed? Haven’t we seen how the Lord has changed the lives of people… for good? Haven’t we seen, or suspect we have seen, some kind of miraculous healing?
May we, by faith, believe.
By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.
May we, ourselves, be healed and made new.
Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord.
