Inviting Interruptions

  • by

Pastor Shaq Hager talked through Acts 3:1-10, the story of a lame person carried every day to a Temple gate where they were left to beg for support. On this day, Peter and John were walking to the Temple to pray, something that they, as righteous Jewish men, did three times each day. And yet, this person called out to Peter and John who stopped, looked at the person, saw them in their need, and offered to them what they had – power in the name of Jesus. It’s a story that teaches us two things: 1) God can work in and through us by His Spirit to heal and restore things and people, and 2) we’re supposed to embrace interruptions in our daily routines and agendas. Like Jesus, we’re to see people and move towards people in their need.
