What’s the point?

“What is the point?” Even if you aren’t a bottom line person, you really want to know the ultimate point in a conversation or destination on a trip. When God does something BIG in your life, what’s the point? Maybe God does something BIG through you – what’s the point? If we are not careful, we’ll drive by the destination!

Peter and John were used by God to heal a man lame from birth. He jumped up and began celebrating! When a crowd gathered around him, Peter and John KNEW the point! They immediately used the attention generated by this event to share the truth about Jesus Christ.

When you go through a serious medical trial, what’s the point of your deliverance? Some people will say, “God spared my life for a purpose!” They are correct. So what is the purpose? Use your experience as a platform to point others to Jesus. Please take a look at what Peter and John said to the crowd. They didn’t focus on the MIRACLE! They focused on the MIRACLE WORKER!

Today God will give you an audience, maybe one person. What is your purpose? What is the point? Tell them about the miracle worker who can change their lives. God has worked in your life in many ways to do incredible things. Use those things as a platform to make much about Jesus.

Acts 3:11-16 While he was clinging to Peter and John, all the people ran together to them at the so-called portico of Solomon, full of amazement. 12 But when Peter saw this, he replied to the people, “Men of Israel, why are you amazed at this, or why do you gaze at us, as if by our own power or piety we had made him walk? 13 “The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His servant Jesus, the one whom you delivered and disowned in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release Him. 14 “But you disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, 15 but put to death the Prince of life, the one whom God raised from the dead, a fact to which we are witnesses. 16 “And on the basis of faith in His name, it is the name of Jesus which has strengthened this man whom you see and know; and the faith which comes through Him has given him this perfect health in the presence of you all. NASU
