“Resurrection of Health”
Acts 4: 10: “Let it be known to all of you, and to all the people of Israel, that by the Name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, Whom you crucified, Whom God raised from the dead – by this Name this man stands before you in good health.” To be lame in first century Palestine was, in some ways, worse than death – living from alm to alm, subjected to beggar’s cartels, bound in spirit and body. But the same Nazarene Whom God raised from the dead resurrected this man who had lived a life of death for over forty years (Acts 3: 2; 4: 22). How? God raised Him first, and He is the first of many!
