So the promised Holy Spirit had arrived, and with it had come the power of tongues–the ability to hear and understand the Gospel of Jesus in one’s own language (without a barrier). Amazing.
Along with the gift of tongues came the power of healing that Peter soon discovered when he and John were walking into the Temple one afternoon to pray. A crippled man sitting by the Temple gate called Beautiful asked Peter and John for money. Peter said he didn’t have any money, but what he did have he would give, which was the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth! And Peter said: “Walk.” And the man did! And not only did he walk, but he ran and jumped! Amazing!
