Following Jesus’ death and resurrection, Jesus gives instructions to his disciples, telling them to go out into the world and spread the good news of salvation.
In the scripture preceding this week’s reading (Acts 3:12-19), we find Peter and John visiting a temple where they meet a lame man at the entrance begging for money. Peter who didn’t have any silver or gold to share with the man, gave him the gift of knowing Jesus. He showed the man the power of God by giving him the ability to walk.
While the crowd around them was amazed, Peter rebukes them for thinking they were in fact the ones capable of this miracle when in fact it was the lame man who “put his faith in the name of Jesus and was made strong.” The name Jesus means, “Saviour”. Jesus heals and saves. Those that come to him in repentance will be forgiven; will be saved.
God gave us the gift of Jesus Christ – through his life, his death and resurrection Jesus lives in us, works through us. It is a gift worth sharing.
