Acts 2:14-40

November 27, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

“Peter’s words pierced their hearts, and they said to him and to the other apostles, ‘Brothers, what should we do?

38 Peter replied, ‘Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. Then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 This promise is to you, and to your children, and even to the Gentiles[f]—all who have been called by the Lord our God.” 40 Then Peter continued preaching for a long time, strongly urging all his listeners, “Save yourselves from this crooked generation!’” v. 37-40

After Peter’s powerful, Spirit-filled message, the people were deeply moved and asked, “what should we do?”  This is the basic question we must ask.  It is not enough to be sorry for our sins.  We must repent ask God to forgive us, and then live like forgiven people.  Has God spoken to you through His Word or through the words of another believer?  Like Peter’s audience, ask God what you should do and then obey. – NLT Life Application Study Bible

Peters first Sermon was powerful.  Why? The truth was told, people were convected of Sin and responded with repentance, and many about 3,000 are baptised and added to the church that day.  The Gospel is so powerful!  How are you responding to it?
