Going With The Flow
What were they on their way to do at the Temple? What did they end up doing?
What did the man ask for from people? What did he expect from everyone? What did he get from Peter?
What is unique about Peter’s response to this cripple man? How is his response different than the other “religious” people at the Temple?
What was the result of this man’s healing?
God’s Power Flows FROM WHERE HE IS.

When it’s not His will, God says “NO!”
When it’s not His time, God says “SLOW!”
But when it’s His will, and the time is right, God says “GO!”
God’s Power Flows FROM WHERE GOD’S AUTHORITY IS RECOGNIZED.
18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given __________________in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20NLT
15 And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone. 16 Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved. But anyone who refuses to believe will be condemned. 17 These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in my name, and they will speak in new languages. 18 They will be able to handle snakes with safety, and if they drink anything poisonous, it won’t hurt them. They will be able to place their hands on the sick, and they will be healed.”Mark 16:15-18NLT
“Many Christians estimate difficulties in the light of their own resources, and thus attempt little and often fail in the little they attempt. All God’s giants have been weak men who did great things for God because they reckoned on His power and presence with them.” (J.Hudson Taylor)
God’s Power Flows FROM WHERE HE WILL GET THE GLORY!
