There are many people in this world who are, or are going to be, looking for answers. This world is bringing itself into line with an altercation with God, which many questions are going to be asked.
Now who has got the answer? There is no doubt it is God.
Now people do have and will have more and more needs you cannot meet. All the problems, great or small, this world is or is getting ready to experience you cannot meet. But you don’t have to because you really can’t. The real way the need must be handled is by God who didn’t make mankind to be able to solve most of the problems of the world. God made Jesus as the answer to mankind’s problems.
In chapter 3, verse 6 of the Book of Acts Peter and John had nothing to give to a man in real need. But they knew who did and they walked with God’s authority. Here is what it says, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you; in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk.”
Peter knew he could do little good for the man, but Peter also knew who could. And look at what happened when Peter and John gave the man the real answer to his need, not the need for a donation but for deliverance. Then it says in verses 7 & 8, “And he took him by the right hand and lifted him up and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. So he, leaping up, stood and walked and entered the temple with them – walking, leaping and praising God.”
God still does and wants to and is going to use the people that are committed to Him and willing to put self aside, to be a part of the bigger plan the world really is in need of and is going to experience.
Notice they didn’t take the credit nor make a big speech to the people, they just explained that this wasn’t them. It was Jesus, the power of Christ, working through them, so the need would be met. The scripture goes on to talk of how they gave the credit to the working of Jesus Christ.
They made sure Jesus got the spot light, not them. They pointed out that there was no other way that this could have happened and while they had the people’s attention they went on to give the people more insight to Christ. Jesus Christ can do great things through His followers when we give Him the credit.
