Signs And Wonders
Topic: Healing Scripture: Acts 5:12–5:16
Acts 5:12-16 tells us of some of the many signs and wonders that regularly occurred in the early church. Residents of Jerusalem and of the surrounding areas brought their sick and afflicted to receive prayer for healing. These signs and wonders are a physical representation of the healing power that God has, incredible acts that bring him glory and pleasure as Lord of all creation. This passage also tells us that at this time, more than ever, believers were added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women. While we faithfully pray that God is the Great Physician who can heal the physically afflicted, we pray just as boldly for those who are spiritually dead, that God may free them from their sin and draw them into life, which is none other than Jesus Christ himself.
