Acts 3:6 – “What I do have I give you.”

Context: Peter and John have met a lame beggar outside the temple gate called Beautiful.

The Beautiful Gate on the Eastern wall of the temple mount. The Muslims have bricked it closed because of the prophecies of the Messiah's return through this gate.

Acts 3:6 – Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you.  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”

Observations:

  • Peter and John said they did not have silver or gold
  • They gave the beggar healing through Jesus’ name.

Application: I need to be ready to give to others what God has given to me (and I have silver and gold).  I also must remember that the world needs healing through Jesus more than it needs social justice.

Prayer: Guide me to the needs that You have gifted me to meet.  Give me the power to work through Your Holy Spirit in people’s lives.
