A 40-year-old lame man had been healed and he was now dancing through the Temple courts praising God. This drew quite a crowd but let’s focus for a moment on what the healed man did next.
He could have gone right back to his old spot and continued to beg but he knew his life would never be the same so he was hanging on to the believers. This is a good thing for new believers to do, hang out with God’s people. The lame man could not preach but his new life could draw a crowd and Peter took advantage of this living witness, shared the gospel, and 2,000 people were added to the kingdom.
Are we allowing our changed lives to speak to the glory of God’s kingdom? We should walk every day in the same enthusiasm and excitement as the day we were saved.
Wanting to be infectious for the Kingdom,
Pastor Gerard Deleeuw
