|With so many vampire movies, and Hollywood producers portraying so many people returning from death, and from death blows, people are obviously thirsty for something beyond the human realm.|
Spiritually hungry people want food just as physically hungry people.
In Acts 3, the man born unable to walk sat at the temple gate each day with expectations. He expected financial support. With the people of God going in and out of the temple, could the people give him something more permanent than silver and gold?
Look at Acts 3:4-6:
4 But Peter, along with John, fixed his gaze on him and said, "Look at us!"
|5 And he began to give them his attention, expecting to receive something from them.|
|6 But Peter said, "I do not possess silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene—walk!"|
We need to give people something from God that will last into eternity. Yes the man was physically healed, but he also received the message of Christ.
As we see people on our way to church or wherever we are going, Christians, let us give people Jesus.
Get their attention and give them a powersful word from God. Look at Acts 3:12-26, for the powerful message Peter gave to man who was healed and the people.
