Scripture

Acts 3:2 KJV

And a certain man lame from his mother’s womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple

Observation

Who is “they”? Who carried him daily to the gate of the temple? Is it possible that who ever “they” were, were using him to get money from other people? Are there people in our life who use us to get something from others? Is it possible that we are allowing some one to exploit our weakness or illness? Do we do that to other people? Always be mindful of the people you allow in your life.

Application

Re-evaluate your circumstances and the people you surround yourself with. Are you allowing people to take advantage of you or vice versa?

Stop enabling people in their addictions or weakness. The resurrection power of the Holy spirit lives inside of us and we can speak to our friends or family members and tell them to RISE UP from their circumstances. Give people a hand up in the name of Jesus instead of enabling their hopelessness. Be like Peter and John and lift people to their “feet” by calling on the name of Jesus.

Prayer

Dear Father, we thank you for sending your one and only son, Jesus Christ, who paid the ultimate price for our sins. We thank you for the authority we have in the name of Jesus and the power granted by your Holy spirit. Father, we pray that you will reveal any relationships that we need to re-evaluate and guide us in the next steps.  Help us to forgive those who may have used us and also forgive us if we have taken advantage of anyone or enabled them in their sin. Give me strength to Love others in their brokenness and most importantly, the Faith to see them healed and set free. In the name of Jesus Christ, I ask all these things. Amen.

Scripture

Acts 2:38-39 King James Version (KJV)

38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

Observation

The promise of the Holy spirit isn’t reserved for only pastors, ministers and your regular church folk. It is available for everyone, if we repent and are baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Don’t be afraid to share the love of Jesus Christ with anyone because you could be the last person they come across. We don’t need a title to minister to someone, if the holy spirit resides in us.

Application

We need to repent daily as we all fall short of the Glory and are natural borne sinners. It takes daily renewal of our mind to become more and more christ-like. I will repent and be thankful everyday for the presence of the Holy Spirit. I will be a light on to others, never judging, so that they may one day walk with Jesus too. 

Prayer

Dear Father, forgive me of my sins in thoughts, actions, words and in-action. Thank you for sending your son Jesus Christ, who died so that I may live. Thank you for the presence of the Holy spirit in my life. I pray that you give me strength and courage to share your gospel openly with all people, for I know that you wish no one to perish. I give you all the glory, honor and praise. In Jesus might name, Amen.
