Acts 5:15 – As a result, people brought the sick into the streets and laid them on beds and mats so that at least Peter’s shadow might fall on some of them as he passed by.
“The head of the church is a victorious and powerful Lord. On this basis, Christ can impart to the church all of the empowering resources it needs to resist the attacks of powers and to engage in the mission of filling the world that God has called it to.”
[Clint E. Arnold, Ephesians, Zondervan Exegetical Commentary]
In our verse today, we see that the very presence of Peter had power. If one could get into proximity of his shadow, then resurrection power could be experienced. Like Peter, we are called to be agents of resurrection power who have the ability to change the atmosphere of every room we walk into.
1. What does Acts 5:15 tell us about the potential of every believer?
2. What does Acts 5:15 tell us about the potential of the corporate gathering of believers?
The resurrection power we have is greater than any depression, sickness, or attack of the enemy. They must flee in the presence of the Spirit.
Father, we thank you, because your resurrection power in us causes a change in every room and every situation we step into. Let every oppression flee in the presence of your Spirit. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
