Jesus does not ask us to do what we are incapable of doing. However, He does asks us to give what we have, even when all we have is His power through us. In today’s reading Peter and John come across a man who had been crippled from birth and wanted nothing more than to be healed. Peter’s response in Acts 3:6, Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Peter literally had nothing to give this man other than the healing power God. When we face tough situations we can approach it in one of two ways: 1) we can say we do not have the necessary skills or resources, or 2) we can realize the creator of the universe has the ability to do anything, including working on our behalf and even through us.
