Acts 2:14-21, and 36-41
Words like “assured”, “I will”, “you will” and “I promise” are all very convincing words. Luke is recording some serious stuff in today’s scripture that he truly wants us to understand. In (v.36) we can be assured that God made Jesus Lord and Christ without any doubt. God did this because He loves us and Peter is making sure we know this. Finding this out scared the people of the day enough that they were cut to the heart, in other words scared to death, and wanted to know what they could do to make things right with God. Do we get “cut to the heart” now a days? If not, we should! Our loving God not only gave us the answer, but He gave us a promise at the same time. “Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off.” (vs.38-39). Repent and be baptized are two of the main ingredients to salvation through Christ. If you are not baptized, you should seek your clergy and get it done for the promise of the Holy Spirit is awaiting you. God keeps his promises and God loves You 😉
