While the healed man clung to Peter and John, all the people rushed toward them at Solomon’s Porch, completely amazed. Seeing this, Peter addressed the people: “You Israelites, why are you amazed at this? Why are you staring at us as if we made him walk by our own power or piety? The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob—the God of our ancestors—has glorified his servant Jesus. This is the one you handed over and denied in Pilate’s presence, even though he had already decided to release him. You rejected the holy and righteous one, and asked that a murderer be released to you instead. You killed the author of life, the very one whom God raised from the dead. We are witnesses of this. His name itself has made this man strong. That is, because of faith in Jesus’ name, God has strengthened this man whom you see and know. The faith that comes through Jesus gave him complete health right before your eyes. (Acts 3:11-16, CEB)
Faith comes through Jesus.
Miracles come through Jesus.
We do not do things of our own power. God works through us to bring healing.
If we follow Jesus, those around us will be healed. But remember healing doesn’t come how we want it, it comes as God gives it.
Believe in the promises we have been given, and have faith in those promises.
Love out Loud!
Loving People. Loving God.
