Our Authority to Heal

Recently in one of our sermons there was reference to Peter and John healing the lame man at the temple gates (Acts 3:1-11) and the observation was made that Jesus must have walked past this man many times but didn’t chose to heal him. The question was asked, “What gave Peter and John the authority and motivation to heal the man at that particular time?”.

In this recording (mp3 file) we look at the power and authority that disciples of Jesus are given to heal the non-believer, and how the healing of believers in the church operates.
