Power Principles for God’s People

Power Principles for God’s People

Acts 3–4:4 (selected verses)

This looks at the occasion when Peter and John experience God’s power at the Gate called Beautiful where a lame man was healed.

1.THEY DID NOT ALLOW THEIR WORSHIP TO REPLACE THEIR WITNESS.  “LOOK ON US”

They realized they had been given access to a power that hurting people desperately needed.
The two commandments deal with worship (love God) and witness (love people). Through the
Holy Spirit we are able to touch people with God’s love and power.

2.WHAT THEY DIDN’T HAVE DID NOT KEEP THEM FROM SHARING WHAT THEY DID HAVE.

They did not have silver and gold. So they focused on what they did have. The man needed
healing but he had probably given up long ago. Money could not buy what he really needed and
it still can’t buy what people need most.

3. IN GOD’S ECONOMY GOD USES WHAT WE CAN DO TO ACCOMPLISH WHAT WE CANNOT DO. "Such as I have I give to you."
When we begin to look at what people need that we already have, we can see miracles. Each of you
believers have the greatest counselor and most powerful person there is living in you!
When you make what you have available God will use it. It is not your ability; it is His.
As we have all heard–It is our availability that God is looking for. God will use YOU!
We must be sensitive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit if we would see God move powerfully.
Those little nudges may lead you to explosive results.

4. IN GOD’S ECONOMY 2+1=5000

Your obedience to touch the one may result in reaching the multitude.
Many churches have used the EACH ONE REACH ONE strategy. This is very biblical.
If we look at the multitudes, we can become overwhelmed but you can touch one.
Let God’s math kick into your life. Peter and John touched one and reached 5000.
Think of someone you could team with to touch an individual. Jesus sent them out by 2.
