Click here for today's reading

42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.

My Pastor pointed out that the phrase is "to the breaking of bread and the prayers." He encouraged us to keep that in mind when we have others in our home,  that it should be a time of food and prayer.

  1. Acts 2
    The Believers Are Filled With the Holy Spirit
    4 All the believers were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other languages as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak.

    6b-8 Each person was startled to recognize his own dialect when the disciples spoke. Stunned and amazed, the people in the crowd said, “All of these men who are speaking are Galileans. Why do we hear them speaking in our native dialects?

    11b We hear these men in our own languages as they tell about the miracles that God has done.”

    Peter Talks to the Crowd
    16-18 Rather, this is what the prophet Joel spoke about: ‘In the last days, God says, I will pour my Spirit on everyone. Your sons and daughters will speak what God has revealed. Your young men will see visions. Your old men will dream dreams. In those days I will pour my Spirit on my servants, on both men and women. They will speak what God has revealed.

    21 Then whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

    23-24 By using men who don’t acknowledge Moses’ Teachings, you crucified Jesus, who was given over to death by a plan that God had determined in advance. But God raised him from death to life and destroyed the pains of death, because death had no power to hold him.

    28 You make the path of life known to me. In your presence there is complete joy.’

    33 God used his power to give Jesus the highest position. Jesus has also received and has poured out the Holy Spirit as the Father had promised, and this is what you’re seeing and hearing.

    36 “All the people of Israel should know beyond a doubt that God made Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.”
