Acts Chapter 3:
13 The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified His Servant Jesus, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. 14 But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, 15 and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. 16 And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes, the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
It is not by our strength or godliness. It is not by our virtue or strife. It is the faith that comes through His Name. It is the faith in His name. His name is Jesus.
When we are witnessing for Christ Jesus we see this channel opened through our spiritual eye by the Holy Spirit. He works the miracle in our life which gives the soundness in this life. Everyday this lame man was placed to receive alms from the people. Everyday we face the same routine of issue and looking up to a human to fulfill our desires. But we never receive the soundness in life. In this situation comes our apostles and they see the need and acted accordingly. They explained the people that the channel of this miracle is not themselves but it is the faith in His name. This gives them a pause to wonder what they missed out by crucifying their Messiah. Now there is a chance to look into Him for their own life. A life that is filled by burdens and temptations. A life that needs deliverance in one way or the other. What shall we do if we are like the people who saw the miracle and wished that they get deliverance in their life like that?
Repent and follow the way of the Holy Lamb who gave Himself as a sacrifice for all mankind. When you do, the blood of the Holy Lamb Jesus Christ will blot out your sins and the curses that you inherited. So the times of refreshing will come from the presence of the Lord. Then you would be blessed and you yourself will be a witness of this mighty revelation. Be strong in the Lord and see the refreshing blessing that comes from the Lord and descends in your house. He is more than able to deliver you from any situation. Repent and look upon Jesus and perfect soundness will flow from God’s presence. Amen.
