Acts 3 (Key verse, Acts 3:6)
What do you have that Jesus can use to build His kingdom?
What kind of miracle are you asking Jesus to do for you?
Peter and John were on their way to pray. This was something they did everyday. Prayer was a regular part of their lives. I’m reading a book on the life of George Muller. He was so committed to prayer that he never told anyone what he needed. He only told God because he wanted God to get all the credit. At the end of his life his journals were filled with requests and answers to those requests. Prayer is an essential part of our relationship with Jesus Christ. This Sunday I’m going to be talking a little bit more on the subject of prayer. I hope you’ll join us.

Verse 19 really spoke to me about the abundant grace that God lavishes upon us. We ask for, or think we need, the smallest of things – “just forgive me Lord” – and God “refreshes” us with his presence!
“Repent therefore, and turn to God so that your sins may be wiped out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.”
One of my favorite verses in the Bible. What does it mean to be a Christ Follower? Turn from your sin and turn to God.
This chapter has really challenged me with the question, “Are people in my life amazed about the work of Christ in me?” Is there evidence in my life that something is different? That there is a power in me greater than anyone else? I am challenged more than every to rely upon, expect, and proclaim is power every day!
That is a great question to ask myself everyday.
I love this story. Steven Furtick spoke on this passage once and made a statement that sticks with me: “when I want what God wants for the reason God wants it, His unstoppable power flows through me”. We see over and over again in the Bible that God uses ordinary people with little resources or status to do amazing things. And yet we still like to say, “who, little old me?” We like to look at what we DON’T posses and use that as an excuse to not be used by God, and yet, that’s the whole point. When we have nothing but ourselves to offer, that’s when God can do miraculous things through us.
Oh I’ve been asking myself the same question…What do I have that Jesus can use? Let me know if Jesus gives you the answer! LOL Seriously though, searching for the answer to this is a spiritual journey. Or maybe I just can’t see the forest thru the trees…
