Silver and Gold
“Silver and Gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.” That’s what Peter said to the lame man asking for alms in Acts 3:6.
We know that Peter did not accomplish this through his own power. It was the power of the name Jesus Christ and resides within each of us. God is not a respecter of persons but He is a respecter of commitment and faith. The lame man was looking expectantly to receive from Peter and Peter believed he had something to give.
We all have something to give. Each in our own special way. Perhaps we cannot all begin with such miraculous results, but we can begin where we are at: giving of our time, of our resources, of our selves — giving of our prayers. God has planted in each of us something that can be used for His glory. It is His gift to us but it is up to each of us to use it. Remember the parable of the talents in Matthew 25.
Our Heavenly Father loves us so dearly. Jesus suffered and died to reunite us with Him. Angels rejoice in heaven when someone new is born into the kingdom. However, God doesn’t want us to stay there, as babes forever. He wants us to grow into the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. Jesus is our example: the firstborn among many brethren.
We are not just one but part of a body. Therefore, we seek to nourish the whole body and not just a part. While we are in this life there are material needs that must be met. But that is not our eternal state and Jesus has shown us that we can begin to operate in the spiritual (supernatural) state that is the ruling realm. Even as in this life He walked on water, created new eyes, raised the dead to life again and continually called those things that are not as though they were - and they were. He prophesied that greater works than these we would do. In Matthew 10:8 He even commanded us: “Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons. Freely you have received, freely give.” Do it in His name, for His glory.
Dare to believe for more. Faith muscles will grow just as physical muscles do with use. As we are faithful in the little things our faith will grow for the larger things. Perhaps even to the day where, like Peter, we can lift a lame man up to walk in the name of Jesus. Silver and gold have I none — no, what we have is much more costly.
Glory to God in the highest - Who Was and Is and Is to come.
Even so, come quickly Lord Jesus.
