Categories: Don’s Daily Devotions

Tues 8th September              Read Acts chapter 3:6-10.


V6:  So, how his hopes must have been dashed initially, when Peter and John told him they had no silver or gold to give – but how he must have then been amazed when Peter says he will give him something other than  ( and better than) money – and with the bold assurance of true faith, Peter then calls on him ” in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth”  to do what he has never been able to do – to get up and walk.

V7:  The apostle reaches out, takes his hand, and lifts him to his feet – and he finds those feet can and do support him! This is not Peter’s own power, of course, but the Lord working through His servant – in those first days of the apostolic age, God is still showing signs and wonders, to point to the truth about Jesus. We are not to presume on such signs today, though God is always sovereign.

V8:  Overjoyed, the man goes into the temple with them, ” walking and leaping and praising God” – praising God, note, not praising Peter – the apostles must have pointed away from themselves to their Lord, as we should all do in our Christian witness.

V9-10:  Those who see this, and recognise him as the lame beggar they have seen so often, are amazed and left wondering how this could be – as yet they have no way of explaining or understanding it.
