Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour.

And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength.

And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God.

And all the people saw him walking and praising God:

And they knew that it was he which sat for alms at the Beautiful gate of the temple: and they were filled with wonder and amazement at that which had happened unto him.

– Acts 3:1-10

Our passage today captures the first spectacular miracle performed by Christ’s disciples after His departure. Since Jesus was no longer with the disciples when this miracle took place, we live today under the same circumstance as the disciples at the time of this miracle. What they did then should, therefore, be a common occurrence among us today.

The lame man at the Beautiful Gate saw Peter and John as they were about to go into the temple and asked alms from them. They responded thus: “And fixing his eyes on him, with John, Peter said, “Look at us.” So he gave them his attention, expecting to receive something from them. Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.” (Acts 3:4-6).

What easily captures the attention of discerning hearts is the level of boldness and confidence with which Peter spoke of what the disciples had inherited from Christ. Peter dispensed healing and restoration to the lame man as easily as he would have dipped his hands into his pocket and given the man a piece of coin or currency note.

The same Holy Spirit that lived inside Peter then lives inside you today. The same name of Jesus that Peter invoked then is available to us today. All you need is to believe as implicitly in that name as Peter did and you will achieve the same results that he did. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

PRAYER:

  • Pray for a revelation of the enormity of the power of the Holy Spirit that you carry within you.
  • Pray that Christians will arise in boldness worldwide and deploy the power of the Holy Spirit.

CONFESSION: The word of God declared by me is as powerful as the word of God declared by Jesus and the Apostles.
