SERMON: June 25th “How Do You Know?”

Today Pastor Dave spoke from Acts 3:1-10 where a man who had been lame from birth was healed and able to walk.  The question that Pastor Dave asked was how do we know what we are suppose to do?  How do we know what God has planned?  That man who sat at the gate had been there everyday and Peter and John had passed by him continually to go to the temple to pray, but it was this day, this hour that the man noticed Peter and John and asked for alms, and it was this day that Peter told him to rise up in the name of Jesus and walk.  How did Peter and John know that this was the day to speak to the man and that he would be healed?  By seeking God and listening to what He wants us to do.  As Pastor Dave said “people have had enough hands out and instead they need a hand up”.  Peter took the man by the hand and helped him to rise.  That is what we need to do – instead of just saying “I will pray for you”; give them a helping hand.  To see people and what they need and to listen to their hurts .
