Read Acts 3:12-4:4
Peter saw his opportunity and addressed the crowd. “People of Israel,” he said, “what is so surprising about this? And why stare at us as though we had made this man walk by our own power or godliness? Acts 3:12 (NLT)
When we act in the power of God, and those watching are in awe, we must always remember that this is the opportunity for which God displayed His power in the first place—not to make us “big shots” in others’ eyes, but to create a receptive audience for His Law and Gospel. When that happens, we must not fear to step into the opportunity and testify boldly as we point others to the Savior.
