Acts 9:32-35
32And it came to pass, as Peter passed throughout all quarters, he came down also to the saints which dwelt at Lydda. 33And there he found a certain man named Aeneas, which had kept his bed eight years, and was sick of the palsy. 34And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately. 35And all that dwelt at Lydda and Saron saw him, and turned to the Lord.

Insights
  • Perhaps Aeneas did not seek out Peter for his healing, but he was willing to rise up, for he arose immediately.
  • News of this miracle was used to bring others to the Lord. Signs and wonders were often used to bring people to the Lord. Jesus did not require a certain set of Christian beliefs before healing could be had.
