You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

“I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” – Psalms 34:1

In Acts we read about a lame man. He was lame from birth and he will be carried to the gate of the temple and he was put to beg every day. One day Peter and John went to the temple and seeing them the lame man asked for money. Then Peter commanded him to walk in the name of Jesus Christ. Instantly that man’s feet and ankle became strong and he began to walk. 

He was lame from his birth and he might have longed for healing. He waited for over forty years and he might have thought that he will never walk but one day he got healed. He should have thanked Peter but yet Bible says that he went with them to the temple courts praising God. 

Once he received the blessing he didn’t ran away but he started to praise God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God they were amazed. As everyone was astonished they ran to Peter and John. Then Peter began to proclaim Jesus to the people who gathered there.

Acts 4:4 says, “But many who heard the message believed; so the number of men who believed grew to about five thousand.

Nearly five thousand people became believers on that day as they heard from Peter and all those were the ones who gathered around him once they saw that lame man who got healed praising God. 

It all started with praise. 

My dear young friends, when you receive God’s blessing you should not run away. You should praise God and run to the people sharing the mighty thing God has done in your life. Through you God will touch the lives of so many people. 

On that day that man who was over forty years of age ran into the temple court jumping with joy and praising God. On the same day five thousand started believing Jesus Christ. 

Through you God wants to bring a change in others life. Keep praising God and share what He has done in your life to others. You will be a blessing.
