November 3, 2013: Lessons From a Lame Beggar

Acts Series message 6

Text: Acts 3:1-18

The first recorded apostolic miracle is a lame beggar being healed. He was crippled from birth, and this was well known to everyone. The crowd that witnessed this (remember, eyewitness accounts are important for Luke!) is filled with awe and wonder. Peter seizes the opportunity to once again point people to Christ while emphasizing the need for repentance. He makes a profound statement: "you killed the author of life." There are so many majestic truths contained in this one phrase! There is truth about Jesus and truth about our great salvation. We'll focus on this phrase on Sunday.
