Carpe Diem

One day God performed a mighty miracle through Peter and John – God used them to heal a beggar man who had been lame since birth. Once healed, the man responded by “walking, leaping and praising God” and followed Peter and John into the Temple. Soon, a crowd rushed towards Peter and John amazed at what happened. Peter saw the growing crowd and he seized the opportunity to tell people about Jesus. This story reminds us God gives us opportunities to tell others about Jesus if only we’ll be like Peter and “see the opportunity” (Acts 3:12) and seize it; if only we’ll “carpe diem,” seize the day. What are the opportunities God gives us? Let’s make a list of them and consider what we can do.
