What Do You Possess?

But Peter said, “I do not possess silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene-walk!” Acts 3:6 NASB

Peter encountered an invalid lying on the ground. He had no real material things to offer him and if he did what benefit would it have been to this man? This man would be satisfied for the moment but the next day he would be right back where he encountered Peter. What do you possess that you can offer to someone in need? Something beyond the physical.

And all the people saw him walking and praising God; and they were taking note of him as being the one who used to sit at the Beautiful Gate of the temple to beg alms, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.                      Acts 3:9‭-‬10 NASB

What Peter gave was far beyond the physical even though it was manifested in the physical. When God transforms a person people take notice. And the gospel can be proclaimed.

And on the basis of faith in His name, it is the name of Jesus which has strengthened this man whom you see and know; and the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect health in the presence of you all.     Acts 3:16 NASB

🌹What do you possess? The Holy Spirit.

🌹What can you offer? Your testimony of faith and of experiencing God.

Continually Seeking Him,

P.S. I am not saying you should not meet the physical but don’t neglect the spiritual for only the physical.
