The man had been crippled since birth. Everyone knew him as the one that sat at the Temple and begged for money. Peter, through Jesus’ name, healed him. The man stood up, ran, jumped around and praised God. People noticed. They were curious as to how he was moving around with no problem and why he was praising God. Peter gave them the answer: Jesus. Five thousand men came to Jesus for salvation.
We may not be able to comprehend what’s going on now but we can know that Jesus is in control. We need to trust that He is working all things for good. Because the Lord can use one person’s crippled condition to bring five thousand souls to redemption.
