Proposition: The Holy Spirit empowers saints to do ministry Jesus-style.
Exposition: Jesus-style ministry employs supernatural strategies that:
1) Repair lives (vs. 33-34). Peter uses the same strategy of Jesus for the healing of the paralyzed (John 5).
2) Revive lives (vs. 36-42). Peter uses the same strategy as Jesus for the raising of the dead (Mark 5).
3) Reach lives (vs.43). Peter uses the same strategy as Jesus to reach and influence one life (Luke 19).
Application: We are called to “re-present” Jesus in one-on-one ministry so that people can still experience His purpose, power and presence in their lives.
