One day as Peter and John were approaching the Temple, they saw a man who was unable to walk. It wasn't unusual to see such people near the Temple, but perhaps seeing this man lying there reminded Peter and John of Jesus and how he always showed love and compassion for seemingly forgotten people. They instructed the man to look at them. Peter said to him, "I have no silver or gold, but what I have I give you in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Stand up and walk." Then the two of them grabbed the man's hands and helped him to his feet.
Suddenly a man who had never walked in his life was jumping for joy. He was healed. His ankles were strong. He was no longer lame. His friends would no longer have to carry him. He was overjoyed and began praising God. Since it was a time for prayer at the Temple, a lot of people saw what had happened. They saw this man jumping and walking about and they were amazed. Peter saw an opportunity to tell them about the risen Christ.
May we also help others and share with them about the risen Savior!
