Acts 3:6 - Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”
After the Holy Spirit came upon him Peter had boldness like never before. This man was crying out for money. Everybody knew who he was because he would sit by the gate called Beautiful everyday, begging. Peter saw this as an opportunity to bring glory to God and also show the Love of God to this man. He called him out and told him to look at him. Then he said this, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”
This man was begging for money because he was used to just scraping by. He had been a cripple from birth and could not work for a living. His expectation was maybe some change to add to his collection, so he could eat a little something that day. He asked for one thing, but got so much more.
Peter opened up the kingdom of God to this man and healed him in Jesus name. After this everyone wanted to know what had happened. They knew who this man was and were amazed that he was now walking. When asked Peter gave all glory to God. That is the most important thing we can learn from this story.
God wants to work through you, but you need to know that it is not you, but Him. We are to give Him the glory for all we do. Without Him we can do nothing, but with Him we can do all things. And again I say that we need to give HIm the Glory. If we try and take credit for it He will pull His hand back and we will fail, because we are nothing without Him. It is God who is glorified when we walk in the power of the Holy Spirit.
