Last Sunday we left off in the book of Acts with a time of peace and growth for the early church. In this setting we will now see the interactions that the Apostle Peter had with two blossoming Christian communities to the west of Jerusalem. In one town Peter healed a paralyzed man, and witnesses of this miracle turned to Jesus. In the next town Peter raised a woman from the dead, and more people turned to the Lord. As we think about these miracles, we will see that when the church is consumed with the mission of Jesus, the world will see glimpses of God’s Kingdom here on earth, and the result for many people will be repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
