Responding to the Resurrection — Acts 2:22-40
What better place to reflect on the amazing resurrection of Jesus than in the first sermon recorded by the disciples of Jesus in Acts 2? This is the clear Gospel message given to those who witnessed the death of Jesus by those who witnessed the death and the evidence of the resurrection of Jesus. Peter clearly makes it known that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ (or Messiah) promised by God to deliver His people.
Unlike other Biblical leaders, even David, Jesus is the Christ, the Savior, of sinners. Unlike others, Jesus is Lord, the one to Whom everyone must submit to now or on the Day of Judgment. Will you, like many of the listeners, ask the important question, “What shall we do?” Repent! Seek forgiveness from your sins and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit!
