Peter and John saw a man, who had been unable to walk since birth, receive a miracle. Through faith in Jesus, his legs were strengthened and he was no longer paralyzed. This was a public miracle at the Temple, which gave Peter an opportunity to explain it. He described the forgiveness and new spiritual life available by faith in Jesus as Messiah. The believers experiencing all of this, described the blessing of Jesus as being that which turned them away from their mistakes. It gave them the ability to leave their toxic selfishness behind.
