Exceedingly Great Joy!

Acts 3:1-16

The man had been lame since birth. Everyday he was carried, by someone else, to the temple in order to beg for bits and pieces. His only means of making a living was begging for the mercy of others around him. When Peter and John pass him by they didn’t give him any coins, rather they healed him. Instantly he could stand, walk, leap, run. He was no longer immobile. He was jumping up and down, clapping, smiling, and singing praises!

People noticed. How could they not? The man was creating quite a scene. But the people noticed that it was the man born lame, who begged them for coins and scraps, who was leaping for joy. He couldn’t contain the joy he felt over his gift.

When is the last time you were so filled with joy over God’s grace that you were jumping up and down, clapping, smiling, and singing praises?
