Beyond Lame Faith @ Out Of The Box Tonight

As we begin our worship tonight @ Out of the Box I am going to invite people to come to the altar area and leave their shoes around the altar and we are going to pray that God will put shoes on our faith!

Acts 3: 1-10

1One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer—at three in the afternoon. 2Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts. 3When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. 4Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!” 5So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.

6Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” 7Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. 8He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. 9When all the people saw him walking and praising God, 10they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.

Points in tonight’s message

The man in this story was unable to physically walk, but we can also find ourselves lame in our faith.

Our faith will become stale when we try to function on our own. Jesus has called us to grow in our faith and not get stuck.

Sometimes our faith is lame because we sponge off our parents, church, or others to feel like we have a strong faith. However, our faith comes from God.

Many times rather than seeking deeper faith we waste time seeking things.

The lame man in the story wanted money and was offered Christ. Which do you choose?
