Acts 5:12-16 NIV
The apostles performed many signs and wonders among the people. And all the believers used to meet together in Solomon’s Colonnade. No one else dared join them, even though they were highly regarded by the people. Nevertheless, more and more men and women believed in the Lord and were added to their number. As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by. Crowds gathered also from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing their sick and those tormented by impure spirits, and all of them were healed.
Reflection. Numbers, numbers, numbers. More and more people came to faith in Jesus. Many people were healed of spiritual oppression and various sicknesses. It must have been amazing. People travelled into the city from surrounding towns. The news, the Good News, spread. Does this make your heart beat faster? Does this cause you to praise? Does this cause you to shake your head in wonder?
Prayer. Thank you, Lord Jesus, that you go on drawing people to you. May we see wonders done in your name. Amen.
