Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I you: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
This difference is here observable. They performed them through Christ, by virtue of His name and authority. They were mere instruments; He was the efficient agent. Christ, on the other hand, performed His miracles in His own name, and by His own authority. He wrought independently. His language was that of omnipotence, theirs was that of faith in Him. He said, "I say unto thee, Arise"; they said, "In the name of Jesus rise up and walk." He was the Messiah, the Son; they were the servants of the household.
(P. J. Gloag, D. D.)
