Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

Peter denied Lord Jesus and he was the first to go back to his fishing after Jesus’ death. But after he received the Holy Spirit he was a changed man.

Perhaps the most surprising (and all-surpassing) grace that we see in the ministry of Peter is seen in Acts 5:14-16: “MULTITUDES brought forth the sick in the STREETS, and laid them on beds and couches, that at least the SHADOW OF PETER PASSING BY might overshadow some of them. There came also A MULTITUDE OUT OF THE CITIES ROUND ABOUT Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: AND THEY WERE HEALED EVERY ONE.” In fact, such a miracle has not taken place at any other time in the history of Christianity (and even in the Old Testament). Peter’s shadow falling on bed-ridden sick people was enough to heal them. There were such crowds that no house or hall was large enough to hold them; the sick had to be laid on the streets – “AND THEY WERE HEALED EVERYONE.” The Lord Jesus gave Peter such a tremendous ministry, which He Himself did not do. The hem of the Lord’s garment healed many, but not His shadow. See what wonders the grace of God, thorough the power of Holy Spirit, can do in a persion!

“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know… WHAT IS THE EXCEEDING GREATNESS OF HIS POWER TO US-WARD WHO BELIEVE, ACCORDING TO THE WORKING OF HIS MIGHTY POWER” (Eph 1:18,19).
