Read Acts 2:14a, 36-41


Read Acts 2:14a, 36-41

2:14a: But Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed them,

2:36 "Therefore let the entire house of Israel know with certainty that God has made him both Lord and Messiah, this Jesus whom you crucified."

2:37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and to the other apostles, "Brothers, what should we do?"

2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

2:39 For the promise is for you, for your children, and for all who are far away, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to him."

2:40 And he testified with many other arguments and exhorted them, saying, "Save yourselves from this corrupt generation."

2:41 So those who welcomed his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand persons were added.


Peter preaches the gospel of Jesus.  That Jesus was crucified and that the people who were listening were among those who cried out "crucify him!"  Their response to Peter's message: "What should we do?"  And all that God asks of us, and of them - is that we turn to him in faith.  That we open our hearts to the gift of the Holy Spirit.


Lord I remember my baptism.  I belong to you as one of your children and nothing can separate me from your love.
