The First Church – First Miracle
There were miracles happening in the very first church, but the story described in Acts 3 (St. Peter’s encounter with the lame man, and his healing) is the first one recalled in detail. It was important enough to Luke (who wrote Acts) to write it down, and examine it more closely. This miracle shows us four things: it points upward, it points forward, it points inward, and it points downward.
What can we learn from these stories of miracles in the Bible? And how do we respond to the miraculous in our daily lives?
