Re:Verse reading–Acts 4:5-31 (day three)
“By what power or what name did you do this?” There’s a difference between wonder and suspicion. Wonder asks, “How can these things be?” Suspicion inquires, “Are you trying to gain the upper hand?” Wonder makes room for miracles; suspicion fears loss of control. Wonder draws a person nearer to the source of miracle; suspicion drives a person away from anything unexplainable. Wonder prepares the heart for the eternal; suspicion hardens the heart towards God. Some of us will approach the spiritual realm with wonder; some of us will approach it with suspicion.
