Our church has started a series on the book of Acts. I don't know for how many weeks it will be our sermon topics but we were asked by our minister to read Acts. So I started!
The first few verses of chapter 3 tells about Peter and John heading for the Temple for a prayer meeting when a man crippled from birth started pleading with them for money.
"But Peter said, 'We don't have any money for you! But I'll give you something else! I command you in the name of Jesus Christ on Nazareth, WALK!" (verse 6)
The Bible Commentary on this verse says, "The lame beggar asked for money, but Peter gave him something much better----the use of his legs. We often ask God to solve a small problem, but He wants to give us a new life and help for ALL of our problems. When we ask God for help, He may say, 'I've got something even better for you.' Ask God for what you want, but don't be surprised when He gives you what your really need."
