(I) Incumbent TAX ASSESSOR Weylyn I. "Cookie" James SUPERVISOR 1ST DIST. WilSeal0) SUPERVISOR 2ND DIST. E. KirkSmith A column by Rev. Bobby Thornhil~ Pastor Centreville & White's Chapel United Methodist Churches "And they realized that they had been with Jesus." Acts 4:13b (NKJV) What a powerful testi- mony that the High Priest and his family gave to John and Peter as they responded with boldness to their questions concerning the healing of the lame man. It is remarkable that they linked the boldness of John and Peter to their relationship with Jesus; the same Jesus that they were determined to de- stroy; and even more re- markable that they would make that statement pub- licly. John and Peter, two ordinary men, fishermen by trade, followers of Je- sus by choice (having ac- cepted His call), were able to heal a man born lame and to do it because of their faith in Christ Jesus. Then to have those, who were His chief adversaries recognize that it was be- cause of their relationship to Him that this miracle was performed must have been like pouring salt on a wound for the Chief Priest and his followers. Imagine if you will how they must have felt; they had cruci- fied Jesus and proven to themselves that He was not the One, only to have His work continue at the hands of common fisher- men. The lame were still walking, the blind still received their sight, and even the dead were being raised by the hand of Je- sus' followers. If this pas- sage only had application in its original context then it would only be a good sto- ry, true enough, but with- out power for us today. It does however have applica- tion today; those who are in a righteous relationship with Jesus are still today working miracles because of that relationship. What about you, what about us? Has anyone realized that we speak and act with boldness because we have been with Him? Maybe we need to revisit our relation- ship and begin to act with boldness to accomplish His "great commission."
