Preached by Rod Benner (00:41)
The apostles performed miraculous signs and wonders during the early years of the Christian Church. Healing even happened as Peter’s shadow passed over the sick. Although people were afraid to join them and weren’t sure about the seemingly new teaching they brought, the people were amazed by the works they could do; works only God could do. Healing power was given to the apostles to establish their authority as messengers of God but also to show God’s loving passion for the people he created. Even though the crowds were drawn by the miraculous power of the apostles, they stayed because of the love of God shown to them by the apostles.
That same power is available to every disciple of Jesus today. As a friend of Jesus, walk in the power of God through the salvation of Jesus Christ. As faith rises, obedience follows and blessings flow.
