Acts 3: 4
Peter looked straight at him, as did John. Then Peter said, “Look at us!”
The Church longs for the world to notice it but they fail to look at those in the world.
We look first.
Peter and John looked straight at him, meaning they weren’t distracted nor did they give a casual glance.
We need to slow our lives down so that we notice, that we have time to look, to study the story of people’s lives. We should never be distracted from the lost. They are everything!
How confident are we to say to someone that they would do well to take a look at our lives? At us! Not just me. But the plural of the church. How we do community. Beggar you are alone but we are together, look at us!
