Our passage for today is Acts 3
You may remember that for these weeks prior to Pentecost Sunday we will using Acts as our Monday passage rather than an old testament passage. This week we see Peter’s first major sermon. He is on the east side of the temple speaking particularly to a group of people who have come to him after Peter and John healed a crippled man. Immediately, as Peter speaks we are able to see a running theme throughout Acts “This is all about Jesus so Trust in him.”
Acts never really tells us why Jesus had to die only that he did and then he was resurrected. Although there are assuredly many in the crowd who saw Jesus crucified and die – there are few there that saw Jesus after he was resurrected. This is the calling of the apostles, it is the calling of us – a calling to live out and share our story.
‘Acts tells believers that they are part of an ongoing quest to discover, steward, and share the good news that through Jesus Christ God has changed the world and made a pledge about the future. The quest begins in trust. Theology is what you discover as a result.’
Have a great day, see you tomorrow.
