THE STORY OF JESUS: Acts 4:32-37
“No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own,
but they shared everything they had.” (Acts 4:32)
This is one of the greatest miracles of Jesus.
Healing the blind or raising the dead is child’s play compared to this.
People giving up their possessions to share with others?
Making or raising a body is nothing to God, He made the whole Universe.
But how do you change the heart of free will yet sinful human beings?
It is this character transformation that convinces me of Jesus.
The resurrected Jesus changing hearts and lives through the Spirit.
Prompting and helping us to think about giving, not getting.
Has knowing Jesus produced this miracle of selflessness in me?
Am I less and less possessed by greed or possessiveness?
Am I more and more becoming a humble, loving, generous person?
This is the miracle I want to see in me.
This is the miracle God wants to see in the church.
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, Your Spirit can change us like this, but we need to open our hearts and minds to be one in heart and mind. Help me to be receptive this this kind of miracle!
