Centuries ago, prophet Jeremiah wrote, “Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls” (Jer. 6:16). It is God’s instruction and is as valid today as it was then, so long ago.
Acts 3:6–9: This text documents a situation in the lives of Peter and John, two believing ministers from the early Church. It is a good example for us, as ministers, and for all believers. The message of the sermon was simple—have faith, believe in the name of Jesus and His work on our behalf. Temporal matters were put aside and were not emphasized. There was no silver and gold to distribute; the emphasis was on spiritual matters. The effect of the gospel was miraculous, and Peter and John put their trust in it and in God. Peter was unwavering when he took the lame man by the hand and lifted him up.
January is a significant month in the church calendar or, in other words, in the life of Jesus. During this time we celebrate Epiphany, the manifestation of Jesus Christ as the light of the world, symbolized by the star in the east that guided the wise men to Bethlehem, into the house where Jesus, Mary, and Joseph were at that time (Matt. 2:11).
