He was lame from his birth. As a mature man he was carried daily and placed at the gate of the Temple to beg for money to sustain himself.
As the two men approached the gate, he raised his voice and his vessel with anticipation, hoping to receive something from them. One of the men spoke up with a voice of compassion, commanding him:
“Silver and gold have I none but such as I have I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”
Reaching down and grasping his right hand the stranger lifted him to his feet. For the first time in his life he was able to stand. With shouts of praise unto God, he went walking and leaping into the temple.
Though he was only expecting a few coins in his cup he received a miraculous healing and a brand new life.
Like this lame man at the Beautiful Gate, we can safely trust in Jesus. He is a God of abundance and He will exceed our expectations every time.
