In Acts 2 we see the first sermon that Peter gave to the Church!
What were the results? We’re told that 3,000 were baptized that day. Considering the practice of the day, this number likely only counted the men and not the women or children who joined them in baptism and the beginning of their journey as followers of Jesus.
When Peter explained what the people needed to do, he also told them that the promise of forgiveness and the Holy Spirit was intended not only for those who heard the message that day, but their descendants as well as those who were far off- whomever God may call to Himself. So, we offer that same plea today. Recognize that Jesus is the promised one of God, choose to follow Him as your Lord, turn away from your sins, and be baptized to join with Jesus for eternity.
WHAT DID THEY DO???
42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved. (Acts 2:42-47)
How devoted are you to the teaching of God's Word?
Are you getting together with the people of God?
Are you in awe and wonder at what God is doing?
Are you generously giving to those in need?
