April 26, Day 117 - Acts 2

Click here to access Acts 2

The birth of the church and Peter's first sermon. It was a very successful sermon in that 3,000 responded. What an amazing day that must have been for everyone in Jerusalem.  First for those in the upper room and then for the people visiting Jerusalem suddenly hearing their language. 

I find it interesting that the skeptics thought they were drunk.  Like being drunk would suddenly allow someone to speak in another language, if that worked, wow.

Our church's goal is that we'll see 12 new people come to the Lord this year. So far we have four, it's been exciting.  Our pastor is very committed to evangelizing the lost.  


  1. "42 All the believers devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, and to fellowship, and to sharing in meals (including the Lord’s Supper[i]), and to prayer.

    43 A deep sense of awe came over them all, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. 44 And all the believers met together in one place and shared everything they had. 45 They sold their property and possessions and shared the money with those in need. 46 They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord’s Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity[j]— 47 all the while praising God and enjoying the goodwill of all the people. And each day the Lord added to their fellowship those who were being saved."

    Is this what we are supposed to do? There is a small group of Anabaptists called the Hutterites that strive to live like this because they believe this is central to loving God and neighbor. I've recently come across one of their members on an Anabaptist email list. Here is a link to their website:

  2. Second Chapter of Acts
    28 You make the path of life known to me. In your presence there is complete joy.

    I am so thankful for the Lord and all He has done for me. He has redeemed me and left His Holy Spirit to guide and lead me in the path set out before me. In His Presence is fullness of joy.

    Jeremiah 29
    11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
