Agents of Shalom

  • by

This week Pastor Shaq Hager discusses Acts 5:12-16. It’s a brief and descriptive passage in which Luke describes the ways the Spirit is at work through the apostles to bring physical healing and restoration to people’s lives and bodies. And not just for people within the nascent church community, but also people outside the community. The Spirit’s healing activity was not just reserved for the first Christians, but appears to have been available to anyone. The apostles and the early church understood their role as agents of shalom, and we’re invited to see ourselves the same way in our neighborhoods, families, and workplaces.
