Can’t look away

They couldn’t take their eyes off them—Peter and John standing there so confident, so sure of themselves! Their fascination deepened when they realized these two were laymen with no training in Scripture or formal education. They recognized them as companions of Jesus, but with the man right before them, seeing him standing there so upright—so healed!—what could they say against that? Acts 4:13 MSG

Here’s the exciting news I want to share with you. It was not Peter and John’s charisma, education, achievements, appearance, career, car, house, or financial situation that made them special. It was their relationship with Jesus. As a believer, you are connected to the same Jesus. The very same.

With your surrender to his leadership and authority, He will also use you to glorify His name in amazing ways. Ask Jesus to use you to magnify His name. He will! I know that He has very special plans for you!
