Scripture Lesson: Acts 3:1-10
On this date in 1977 Glenn Burke greets Dusty Baker on the dugout steps to congratulate his Dodger teammate for hitting a grand slam against the Phillies in Game 2 of the 1977 NLCS. The greeting, which consists of the two players extending their right arms above their heads and slapping their hands to make a resounding clap, is considered to be the first “high five” in baseball history.
Peter and John heal a man crippled from birth in our Scripture lesson today. When Peter told him to walk in the name of Jesus, the beggar got up and walked. Not only did he walk he began to jump and praise God! Can you just imagine what kind of a celebration that must have been? The crippled beggar now walking, jumping, and praising God! Too many times we miss the opportunity to celebrate all God has done for us. Often times when God answers our prayers, we even fail to say thank you to Him. Today and everyday take time to celebrate God’s goodness and all He has done for you!
1. Describe the last time you celebrated all God has done for you.
2. When is the last time you praised Him for who He is and what He has done?
3. How can our celebrating God’s goodness to us be used by Him to reach others?
We have so much to celebrate with God. Today take some time and give God a spiritual “high five” by praising his name!
