The God of History
God is the God of history. He was and is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He was and is the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He was and is my father’s God. He is the eternal God and yet in His amazing grace, He interacts with people in real time.
As Peter, in Acts 3, responds to the gathering crowd who have just witnessed the work of God in the healing of the crippled beggar, he declares the essential cause of the miracle. God.
What is Peter testifying?
The God of history is at work.
The God of the patriarchs–Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is at work.
This God, who exists in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit has continued the work He began in eternity past. This God, who has ‘pitched His tent with us’ is rightly called ‘Emmanuel’ – God with us.
