READ : Acts 3:1-10
As a pastor I am also a scoutmaster in our church troop. I say, “Let’s set up the tents here, and there, and tie up a rope from this tree to that tree to dry out our sleeping bags. Put the water bottle here. Make a wood pile over there. Build a fire pit here!” Whatever I say, it happens.
Whatever God commands, it becomes a reality. That’s why we call our God mighty and awesome. God created the world with his word.
With the same power Jesus healed the blind, lepers, and sick people. Whenever Jesus spoke to the people, they recovered their health.
With the same power Peter said, “I have no silver and gold, but I will give you what I have. In the name of Jesus, stand up and walk.” Then the leper walked and jumped all around the temple.
Today God forms new creations among his people with his word. When people hear the Word of God, it changes their lives for the better.
Let us create a new world by the Word of God.
Lord, renew us with the power of your Word.
