Acts 3:1-6

Now Peter and John were going up to the temple at the hour of prayer, the ninth hour.[a] And a man lame from birth was being carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple that is called the Beautiful Gate to ask alms of those entering the temple. Seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple, he asked to receive alms. And Peter directed his gaze at him, as did John, and said, “Look at us.” And he fixed his attention on them, expecting to receive something from them. But Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!”

One response to “Acts 3:1-6

  1. They looked on the lame man and had compassion. They had faith in the God they served and knew that he could heal. They put their faith, and their God, on display by calling for the man to stand and walk. They knew that money was not the answer, but that God could change lives and give the man what he had craved his whole life. My ability to share Christ and His life changing power is worth so much more than the dollars I have in my pocket.
