Daily Bread 9/19/2023


Daily Bread – September 19, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) Acts 9:40-42 – And Peter sent all of them outside, and he knelt down and prayed. And turning to the body, he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes and saw Peter and sat up. And giving her hand, lifted her up, and he called the saints and the widows and presented her alive. And it was known throughout all Joppa, and many believed upon the Lord. Peter ministered to Tabitha in a similar way to Jesus ministering to the daughter of Jairus (Mark 5:36-43; Luke 8:49-56). Jesus removed everyone from the room except Peter, James, and John – and the father and mother of the girl who were in faith for their daughter’s recovery. The miracle power of God that flows from the presence of God is shut down by the skepticism and suspicion of men. The reason for extraordinary miracles is so men may encounter the reality of God. The message of the Gospel is one of power that produces healing for the body and deliverance for the soul. This Gospel of the Kingdom is the same one Jesus preached and the same one He commanded the Church to demonstrate. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
