BEARING TRUE WITNESS TO GOD…
📕Acts 3:11-26; Ps 8:2ab and 5, 6-7a, 7b-9 (R.v.2ab); Luke 24:35-48
“To God be glory for ever and ever” (Gal 1:5).
After the healing of the lame man at the Beautiful Gate (Acts 3:1ff), the apostles must have become instant VIPs but that did not get into their heads. They still remembered that it was through the name of Jesus that they were able to do it and informed the people so (cf. Acts 3:12ff).
How many times do we remember to channel back the glory sincerely to God after we have prayed for people and they got their healing? Or even assisted people in charity; do we remember that every good and perfect gift we have comes from God (James 1:17)?
The greatest gift that we have however is the gift of faith, and this too we must hand on in the name of Jesus as witnesses to all things that were said about him and all that he did and all that happened about him (cf. Luke 24:48).
As we go on doing so, we are sure that Jesus would be handy to encourage us and clarify our doubts (see Luke 24:35-48).
May God assist us to remember always that He is our source and cut off from him, we can do nothing (John 15:5). Amen.
Have a beautiful day in union with God. Peace be with you.
