Good morning.


How do we respond to those in need? It may be the car gaurd, the beggar at the traffic light or the next door neighbour. How do we respond?


In Acts 3 we read of the account where Peter and John were entering the grounds of the temple when a beggar asks them for money. Peter's response gives us a hint of how we should respond to those in need.


The man wanted to relieve his financial burdens. But Peter saw he needed a deeper healing. Walking with Jesus, Peter had learned from his Teacher that poverty is more than just a lack of material wealth. Poverty is also physical and spiritual bondage.


Jesus taught the Good News and healed. So the early Church followed Jesus’ example.


So Peter proclaims the name of Christ. He takes the man by the hand. And the lame man begins to walk and leap. They immediately entered the temple courts praising God together.


As we seek to share the love of Christ, we have the example of Peter and the early Church to follow. We proclaim, and we act. We bring healing of hearts, minds, and bodies. We do lavish good deeds while we boldly share about the amazing grace found in Jesus Christ.


Have a good day.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
