As Peter concludes his sermon in Acts 2, he calls the crowd to repentance, baptism and promises them the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is immediately followed by the account of the practices of the early church. This passage gives us a vivid picture of the role of the church in connecting people vertically to God through salvation and horizontally to one another in community. In part 5 of our Unstoppable series, we look at how Acts 2:38-47 provides God’s unstoppable game plan for us. No matter our circumstances, His gospel is unstoppable and will continue to bring redemption, healing and freedom to many.
WHAT WILL YOU DO
Acts 2:38-47 presents a foundational picture of the role of individual believers and the church in connecting people with God for salvation (vertical) and with other people in community (horizontal), forming the picture of a cross. Will you ask God to empower you to fulfill these roles as He leads?
“Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.’ – Acts 2:38 NIV
