We Could All Use a Little Change (Acts 3:11-16)

Be Changed Into Christ

We Could All Use a Little Change

By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. – Acts 3:16 (Acts 3:11-16)

At tha time of prayer, three in tha afternoon, Old Pete seen a cripple at the Beautiful Gate. Pete said ter tha feller, “In tha name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk!”

Now ya might think that be a harsh thing ter say ter a crip who be begging fer scraps, but Old Pete whar not known ter think ter much fer he spake. More’n that, Pete reached out with his right hand and helped tha feller stand.

Right off tha feller’s feet, ankles, legs and all became strong. Right off he began ter strut about. Then he went with Old Pete and John inter tha temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising Skipper.

Yes, why I reckon he did, fer such a healing whar not what tha mate be expecting. But this be tha power of tha Son and his Spirit in folks. Question be, doth ya believe this story?

If not, why?

If so, doth ya think ya speaking with such boldness in tha name of tha Son could lead ter a lass or feller getting healed?

If not, why?

If so, when was tha last time ya spoke boldly ter a feller or lass who be in need of a healing miracle?

If not, why?

If so, whar they healed?

Tha beggar be thinking he would get some change, not ter be changed. Make it yer task ter speak bold words in tha name of tha Son, then trust his Holy Ghost of Truth ter change folks. We could all use a little change and ter be changed a little more in ter tha image of tha Son.
