Daily Bible Reading: Acts 5:1 – 16
Verse of the Day: Acts 5:12a – “And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people…”
At the start of the New Testament church, they did not have the completed Word of God to validate their message. God gave the apostle’s the ability to perform miracles on a regular basis to validate their message.
Luke says that they performed signs; this is supernatural events that pointed to a warning, instruction, or encouragement from God. He also speaks of wonders, these were the responses to the signs. Jesus spoke about this in Matt. 12:38,39).
Today, we have the complete validated teaching of God in the Bible. Sometimes God still performs miracles, not to validate His Word, but to accommodate His plan. Look for the signs and wonders, but trust in the infallible Word of God.
Prayer: God, speak to me through Your Word. Let me speak to others through the revealed truth in Your Word. Amen.
