Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”
Some see missions only as financial donation.
If the man had received silver or gold it would only have perpetuated the problem.
Not all money going to the poor is wise money.
Some see missions through the name of someone powerful.
“Who are you going on the mission field with?” “I’m serving with X!” Sadly it can get competitive.
There are many names in missions.
There’s only one name that raises the cripple.
Some try and give what they don’t have and be what they are not.
Miracles happen when what we give is from the Father’s hand and who we are is hidden behind who Jesus is.
Missions in the name of Jesus contain miracles that are authorised by Him.
The command to do the impossible is part of the missions agenda. Those who can’t should be called into the realm of activity to do more than they or anyone expected.
