Acts is an exciting Book, acts have never ceased.
Peter and John were going to the temple to pray and meet a cripple. The cripple was expecting to get something from the people going to the temple in the way of money.
Peter and John told him they don’t have enough money to satisfy what he needed, but what they do have they’d give him.
Peter said “what I do have I give to you in the Name of Jesus, Rise up and walk.”
Peter and John had an assurance, an assurance of what they believe, an assurance of who Jesus really is, an assurance as vessels of the Most High God they could use that faith.
This assurance needs to be a part of our lives, so we can complete our gobal task; The Great Commission.
Mathew 28 verse 28
Then Jesus came near and said to them “All authority has been given to me in heaven and on earth.”
If we read the last chapter of Mathew 28, you will notice there are actually two other great commissions. leading up to the final “Great Commission.”
Chapter 28 verse 6 to 7
Verse 6 the angel told the women, He is not here, for He has been resurrected just as He said. Come and see the place where He lay.
Verse 7 Then GO quickly and TELL His disciples, He has been raised from the dead.
Chapter 28 verse 10 Then Jesus told them, “do not be afraid GO and TELL my brothers to leave for Galilee and they will see me there”.
Chapter 28 verse 18 to 20 We are all commanded to GO and TELL .
This command is proceeded by an all-empowering claim. Jesus declares that all authority is His in heaven and earth.
With this supreme authority then, He has appointed you and me to GO and TELL.
We are to go tell everywhere we go, everyday we go so we too can spread His good news.
This teaching is about Such as we have; lets go look into the great things He has given us in Psalm 23 verse 1
Psalm 23 verse 1 The Lord is my Shepherd there is nothing I lack.
I shall not lack peace and provision
I shall not lack hope and encouragement.
I shall not lack guidance
I shall not lack protection.
I shall not lack help and healing.
I shall not lack endless blessing.
I shall not lack eternal life and heaven.
He has equipped us for service.
He has given us His authority. He told us we lack nothing.
So SUCH AS YOU HAVE in the Name of Jesus (Our Lord and Friend)
GO TELL GO SHARE the wonderful things you have been given.
