Giving What You’ve Got

During this year I have loved reading from the book of Acts – I feel it is a very similar situation to what we are facing in the world right now.

Interruption and disruption of our plans, unable to have Church as we had before, hard times, and people spreading out!

In Acts 3, Peter and John were going about their regular routine to the temple when suddenly they were interrupted!

3 When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money. 

.. 6 Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” 

.. 8 He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.

Maybe you have been disrupted this year?

You had plans to do something but suddenly they have gone out the window!

Peter responded to the change with what he had.

If we try to respond to situations with answers we don’t have – that leads to stress.

We need to pray about those situations.

But we all have some way to respond.

Peter didn’t have money – but he did have faith.

So he gave that to the man and prayed for him.

I believe God has put something in your hands to impact those around you in a positive way.

Maybe it’s finance as we give, or time spent serving.

It might be advice or prayer or comfort to a friend.

Let’s not focus on what we don’t have, but give what we’ve got in this season!

Next Wednesday 11/25 at 8PM we will have a special online Prayer & Praise Night!

Signup here www.lifehou.se/yokohamapraise and we will send out the details., and also there is space for you to leave a prayer request.

We believe its going to be a powerful time together!

We can’t wait to see you at Church this Sunday!

Whether you are joining us in-person or online know that are a valuable part of Church, so let’s continue to stay connected at connect group and faithful with our serving and tithes.

Praying for you daily!
