Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: 'If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple and are asked how he was healed, then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed.'
What a comeback for someone who had denied Christ three times on the day that Jesus was crucified. Now, that same Peter is standing up and boldly proclaiming the resurrection of Jesus. He boldly states that it is only through the power of our risen Savior that the crippled man was healed. Can you imagine how easy it would have been for Peter to take credit for what happened? But, no, Peter informs them that it is through the one that they had crucified. Are you prepared to boldly proclaim the Gospel as Peter did? We are all called to be ready to do so.
