Creating Spiritual Momentum
Now as Peter went here and there among them all, he came down also to the saints who lived at Lydda. There he found a man named Aeneas, bedridden for eight years, who was paralyzed. And Peter said to him, “Aeneas, Jesus Christ heals you; rise and make your bed.” And immediately he rose. And all the residents of Lydda and Sharon saw him, and they turned to the Lord. — Acts 9:32-35
You know, sometimes we get stuck. We feel like our spiritual lives are stagnate, stalled, and stale. And I know because I have been there. And often, this happens because we have not taken the initiative to create new spiritual momentum. We have become too routine, hoping the same old spiritual practices will produce new results. And fella's this is the definition of not insanity, but stupidity.
Yet this is what I love about Peter. He is a man who is always on the move. And for the next few chapters, this man will be all over the place, encountering all sorts of interesting people in unique situations. And thus, this is a man who has a lot of spiritual momentum. And you know what a man with spiritual momentum does? He creates spiritual momentum for others. This is precisely what happens here. Peter is on the move, so Aeneas becomes a man on the move — both physically and spiritually, which has a snowball effect on others.
With a start of a new season upon us, I want to challenge you today to do something new to initiate spiritual momentum in your life. Share a post. Serve a brother. Offer encouragement. Pray for someone. Give to a ministry. Just do something spiritually. Do something adventurous. Get out of your comfort zone and initiate new spiritual momentum. And then take notice because the momentum you create might be multiplied by the Spirit of God.
