Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none, but, such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. —Acts 3:6

In the New Testament, signs and wonders were done before the people. Wherever Jesus went, the people followed Him. God was with Him, putting fear upon the people through miracles, signs, and wonders that God wrought through Him.

He said, "I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works" (John 14:10). When the rulers, elders, and scribes demanded to know from Peter: "By what power, or by what name, have ye done this [healed the impotent man]?", Peter responded: "Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead even by him doth this man stand here before you whole" (Acts 4:7, 10). Not I, but Christ. It is the same today.

In the signs and wonders today, it is "Not I, but Christ." He dwells in these bodies, and the work is done by the mighty power of the Holy Ghost. "Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost?" Jesus Christ dwells in us. We are God's powerhouse.

Jesus, I desire to be Your
powerhouse. Amen.
