Today in Worship – Acts 3:1-10—We will be looking at an encounter with Peter and John and a lame beggar. As we read this encounter there is great need but also great provision (healing) as we see the lame man begin leaping. As we wrestle with this passage we are left asking who do we see ourselves as in this narrative? Am I the beggar? Am I the leaping man? Am I Peter the healer? What we’ll see is that we aren’t just one, but rather all three. We are lavished as lame beggars that in our leaping we may proclaim the healing name of Jesus to all who are sick, needy, and themselves a beggar.
Cornerstone Missionaries Josh & Erin Verdonk will be prayed for this morning. Josh and Erin have a heart for expanding the reach of the Gospel through aviation with New Tribes Mission Aviation in Papua New Guinea. Josh is a pilot specialist, flying into the remote tribal areas of Papua New Guinea. This includes loading and unloading the aircraft, flying into remote tribal airstrips that are short and narrow, transporting personnel, groceries, supplies, and providing medical evacuations if needed. More than logistical support for tribal missionaries, Josh will be able to encourage those tribal missionaries who are living, serving and teaching in tribal areas.
Also, please join us in prayer for Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church in New Berlin – Pastor Frank Marsh.
