Peter Healed A Man

Acts 3-4

One day, Peter and John went to the

temple to pray. They saw a man sitting

by the gate. The man could not walk,

so every day his friends carried him to

the temple. As people went into the

temple, the man asked them for

money since he could not work.

The man asked Peter and John for

help. Peter said, “Look at us.” The man

looked at Peter and John. He thought

they were going to give him money.

“I do not have silver or gold,” Peter said. But Peter did have something better. “In the name of

Jesus, get up and walk.”

Peter helped the man up. The man was healed! His feet were strong, and he could walk and

jump. Then the man went into the temple with Peter and John, walking, leaping, and praising

God.

Everyone who saw the man was amazed. This was the man who could not walk and sat at the

gate, but now he could walk! How could such a wonderful thing happen?

The next day, the religious leaders met together. They asked Peter and John, “How did you

heal this man?”

Peter was filled with the Holy Spirit and said, “This man was healed by the power of Jesus.”

Then Peter told the religious leaders that Jesus is the most important One of all.

The religious leaders did not know what to say. They told Peter and John to be quiet and to

stop telling people about Jesus.

But Peter and John said, “We cannot keep quiet. We must tell people what we have seen and

heard.” Peter and John met with other believers and prayed that God would give them power to

be brave and tell people about Jesus.

Acts 3–4

STORY POINT: THE HOLY SPIRIT GAVE PETER POWER TO HEAL A MAN. One afternoon, Peter and John went to the temple to pray. They saw a man sitting by a gate. The man could not walk.

Peter said to the man, “I don’t have any silver or gold for you, but I will give you what I do have.” Then Peter said, “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, get up and walk!”

Peter reached out and helped the man up. All of a sudden, the man’s feet and ankles were strong. He could walk! He went into the temple with Peter and John, and he praised God.

The next day, the religious leaders asked Peter and John, “How did you heal this man?”

Peter said, “This man was healed by the power of Jesus Christ from Nazareth. You nailed Jesus to a cross, but God raised Him from the dead. It is because of Him that this man is healed!”

The religious leaders didn’t know what to say. They ordered Peter and John to never preach or teach in the name of Jesus again. Peter and John said, “We cannot be quiet. We must tell people about what we have seen and heard.”

Peter and John met with other believers and prayed that God would give them power to speak boldly and without fear.

Christ Connection: After Jesus returned to heaven, the Holy Spirit gave the disciples power to begin working. With the power of Jesus’ name, Peter healed a man who was lame. Not even the religious leaders could stop Jesus’ followers from sharing the good news about Jesus.
