What God Offers

 2And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple;

 3Who seeing Peter and John about to go into the temple asked an alms.

 4And Peter, fastening his eyes upon him with John, said, Look on us.

 5And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them.

 6Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.

 7And he took him by the right hand, and lifted him up: and immediately his feet and ankle bones received strength. (Acts 3:2-7, King James Version)

The lame beggar was thinking in worldly terms when he asked of money from Peter and John.

But Peter and John were filled with the holy spirit and thought in spiritual terms.

If he had received the world's offerings he would have been empty again.

But, upon receiving what God offers he was made whole.

God wants to heal us. Whether it be physically or spiritually.
