Scripture Verse Of The Week


“But Peter said, ‘I have neither silver nor gold, but what I have, I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk’.”

The Christian walk is not about how much money you do have or don’t have. It is about how much of The Christ you have.

Many of us will do our best as long as circumstances reward our efforts. But what happens if we work for less then an ideal boss, or if our work place or those around us seem to be satisfied with the mediocrity, or if everything seems to be treating us unfairly. Are we willing to pursue  the excellent?

what happens to our confession of Faith? what happens to our life, we have let Jesus into? Do we because of things being not right around us, not have the same commitment to Our Christian walk, and the authority we have been given?

This scripture verse is from the book of Acts. from a worldly point of view, the followers of Jesus at that time had very little going for them. They had no political or religious recognition, no church buildings and little influence. What wealth they did have was shared among the believers.

But what they did have, set them apart from the rest was the Power of God. Jesus had promised his followers, that they would perform miracles. {John 14 verses 12 to 26}

This was the early church, the acceptance of Jesus as The Christ was vibrant and exciting, they knew what they had, despite the circumstances being tough around them. The greatest opposition they had came from the religious people of the day, who didn’t understand that the worship of God, had because of what Christ Jesus did on the cross, had become a relationship with their Creator God  and a daily walk.

So you see it doesn’t matter what circumstances, we go through in life. whether we are up or down, the truth of the matter is< Jesus is the same , Yesterday, Today and Forever. The same power, the same Grace flows through us, because we have accepted Jesus as Our Lord and Savor and Our Friend.

Jesus doesn’t say because you are going through a rough time, or because maybe you are to excited in your Faith, that His power won’t work in your life. It is available to all who dare to use it.

Christianity is  a witness of The Risen Lord, and all that he has done for us and given to us. The great challenge is to use the Faith and all that Christ Jesus has given you at all times.

What would stop you saying to somebody you meet with a need, “Such as i have in Jesus Name, be free.”

Perhaps we need to say it to ourselves at times, to remind us of the Power and Authority That Our Lord and Our Friend has given to our lives by His Grace {Undeserved favor}.

The Risen Lord and all He has done and given to us, should always be evident in our lives, highs or lows, it is apart of our walk with Him.

God Bless.
