THE STORY OF JESUS: Acts 3:11-26
“Through your offspring all peoples on earth will be blessed.” (Acts 3:21)
Compare Peter and John’s boldness here to their fear before Jesus died.
Either they’re nuts, or they’re telling the truth!
They are not just on fire about ‘forgiveness’ or ‘going to heaven’.
They know God is using Jesus and them to bless the nations…
To bring times of refreshing to the whole world!
To restore God’s creation paradise, and bless all people!
God has placed ‘Adam’ on the throne to make things ‘very good’.
Healing this man is a sign of what God wants to do for everyone.
Like Peter and John, I want to be a blessing people in Jesus Name!
To be known for blessing – not judging, or hiding, or hypocrisy.
This is our job until Jesus’ returns, to be witnesses of Who He is.
To spread times of refreshing (v.20) until God restores everything (v.21).
As a Jesus follower, make it your new year’s resolution to do this.
Look for ways today to show people God’s plan to bless and restore the world.
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, we have been blessed to be a blessing. You are on the throne, but You are exercising Your rule through us, by the Spirit. Help me to see the opportunities today to bless people in Your Name.
