Acts Week 6 – Three Parts Played
In this week’s passage we find the story of Peter healing a lame man. This miraculous event caused quite a stir. Pastor Brad explains that there are three sets of characters in this story who represent three aspects of God’s work: some were the disrupters, some were disrupted, and some were disturbed. Peter and the other apostles were the ones God was working through to make a disruption. The man who was healed and the crowd who witnessed his restoration had their lives disrupted in a positive sense by the work of God. Even better, they came to know God through it. Sadly, the religious leaders were simply disturbed by this work of God. They saw it as a threat to their power and security. These same roles snd responses are available to us today because God is still working in our time.
