Missionaries (3)

Peter was a missionary, too. Our Bible Reading tells us that he traveled to the cities of Lydda and Joppa. Peter told people about Jesus.
While Peter was in Lydda, he met a man who was paralyzed. His name was Aeneas. Verse 33b tells us that Aeneas “had not been able to get out of bed for the past eight years.” Peter healed Aeneas, and he was able to walk again. This was something that could only happen with God’s power. Because of this miracle, many people believed in Jesus.
Our Bible verses also tell us about Tabitha. She was a woman who did kind things for other people. But Tabitha became sick and died. Peter made Tabitha alive again. “People everywhere in Joppa learned about this, and many believed in the Lord” (verse 42).
Peter did miracles, but his message was the same as our message — that Jesus died and rose again so we can have our sins forgiven. Tell someone this wonderful news today!
