Easter 4 – Acts 4:8-10

From Acts 4:8-10 – Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders, if we are questioned today because of a good deed done to someone who was sick and are asked how this man has been healed, let it be known to all of you, and to all people of Israel, that this man is standing before you in good health by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead.”

In verses prior to these, Peter had healed a crippled man who would sit at a gate to the Temple and beg for money from those entering. Healing was an integral part of the Apostles’ ministry as it was in Jesus’. Yet, the acts of healing were also seen as radical and disruptive to the religious authorities of the time. Those of us in the faith and health movement continue to find ways to practice this radical hospitality toward our brothers and sisters today.

Prayer:

Healer God, may we be healing presences to those who come before us today. AMEN.
