Be Healers

Acts 4:29-30

“And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and enable your servants to speak your word with all boldness, as you stretch forth [your] hand to heal, and signs and wonders are done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

Peter and the followers of Jesus were impassioned by the Holy Spirit to spread the words of Jesus and to allow His healing and love to be channeled through them…even to those who were threatening them. Jesus said to build the kingdom of God here and now through love, mercy, forgiveness, compassion and justice. He also said to love our enemies. How is that possible? Only through God’s grace! As Jesus said, “No one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above” (John 3:3). In other words…you have to be willing to throw-out your old way of thinking and allow the mind of Christ to be born in you. It takes transformation. You have to take on a whole new way of thinking! You and I are a part of a much bigger picture. We are part of a bigger plan. The path we are on is one of faith and grace…not merit. It is not your doing…but a being-done-to!
