A lame man begging at the temple gate was hoping for a little and, instead got a lot. Peter and John saw him in his misery and spoke the mighty Word of the Risen Jesus Christ, telling him to get up and walk. He was expecting some coins and, instead, got the riches of God’s grace which restored him to wholeness. The risen Jesus was active and working through his Body, the Church. Peter and John did not make the lame man walk, the living Jesus did it. Sometimes we don’t recognize or access the presence and power of the risen and living Jesus, who indwells His Body with the Spirit. There is more available to us than we ordinarily expect.
