Receiving Healing Power
Topic: Power of Disabilities

And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. (Acts 3:5 KJV)

In Acts 3, there was a cripple man at the gate of temple and begged to receive something from the people to live. Although it doesn’t tell us specific items that this beggar asked for, we understand that he needed some help to put his life back together. We’d probably know that this man was having a hard time to seek some assistance from his community. Most people, especially Pharisees, wouldn’t do something with him because he’s filthy and mess.

But not Peter as he crossed by the temple. Although Peter didn’t have money, he gave this man something greater than the gold or silver. He received Jesus Christ in his life and the power of healing. Because of Peter, this poor man became a spiritual rich from being poor. Many people may miss the opportunity to meet the beggar and became spiritual poor.

Even though we have many Christian churches in America, it doesn’t mean that we are secured spiritually. Some of mega churches may act like the rest of people in Acts 3. We understand many people go to the worldwide healing services to get healing in physically, spiritually, mentally, and financially, but their requests may not be answered. We cannot receive the healing until we know Jesus Christ and have built relationship with Him.

Peter didn’t ask Jesus to heal the man immediately (see Acts 3:6). Instead, he explained to this beggar that he didn’t money to drop in the offering plate. But Peter didn’t stop there. He had something to give to this beggar that was far greater than money—that was introducing him Jesus Christ. Then Peter lifted the beggar up to begin the healing process (v. 7).

Money doesn’t cure your illness nor going to healing services. The only way that we can receive the healing in our lives is through our personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
