“The Lame Leaps”

Key Verse

 “And he leaping up stood, and walked, and entered with them into the temple, walking, and leaping, and praising God” (Acts 3: 8).

Text — Acts 3:11-10


The story of the man in our text today is pathetic. He was lame from birth, hopeless, helpless, and useless to his family and friends. He became a full-time beggar known by everyone at the gate of the temple which was called ‘’Beautiful”, asking for alms to stay alive. Peter introduced him to the Giver of gifts rather than the normal alms he was expecting. The man received a great miracle of healing and he leaped, walked and praised God.

The condition of the lame man is akin to the life of all sinning and backslidden youths today. Their hearts are crippled by sinful habits. Not finding relief, they secretly cry like the Paul’s case in the Bible, “O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord…” (Romans 7:24-25). Lasting freedom comes only from Jesus. Youths who have experienced miracles should learn to praise God like the lame man and dedicate their lives for the service of God by informing their friends of God’s goodness and mercies.


Learn to praise God


Praise God always in every situation.

Prayer for today

Oh God, deliver me from barriers to my progress, in Jesus’ name.
