Scripture: Acts 5:12-16
It is interesting to note how both the Priestly Christ and the Judicial Christ flowed together in the early church. Not only did they ask that God extend His Hand to heal, but they asked that judicial signs and wonders be done. And these saints got exactly what they asked for. It was not just a basic, occasional healing that took place. They experienced such a healing anointing that anyone that came under the shadow of Peter was healed. It was so commonplace that whenever someone saw Peter coming, they would run, get the sick and bring them out to see if his shadow passing over them would cause them to be healed. He and his church community carried an appealing weightiness and power that impacted all those they met. God intends that every believer be fully trained to represent both the Priestly and the Kingly Christ at any given moment of time. Peter made a significant impact and I trust we will move in that direction too.
