Today we read in Acts 3 of the crippled man who was laid DAILY at the Beautiful Gate of the Temple. JESUS Himself had passed through that gate on many occasions, but what happened to this man on this day was because he FINALLY had faith to be healed! Remember that faith comes by hearing (and hearing and hearing (Romans 10:17) the Word of God. This man had heard when JESUS spoke, and than after the Resurrection and the day of Pentecost, when the early church members were FILLED with Holy Spirit, he had heard what EVERYONE was speaking of, when the 3000 new believers were born again after all of the visiting Jews from other nations HEARD the disciples speaking to them, and they heard in their own languages! SIGNS, WONDERS, MIRACLES! They happen when the One, True God is GLORIFIED! Acts 3:4-8:
Don't you just KNOW that the people were ECSTATIC! SOME were! Others not so much. SOME believed! Others did not. It will be the same for you. When you share the Good News, even with signs and wonders and miracles that confirm that news, SOME will not believe or receive. We CANNOT be moved by the reactions of the people, for good or for bad. We must simply do out part in sharing the Gospel and being obedient to Holy Spirit, casting the care of it all over on Him! Walk away rejoicing in the TRUTH of the Word and allow Holy Spirit to do what only HE can do! AMEN! Here is an older song by Hillsong United called "Tell The World":
Shalom in Him!
