The Word Of God And The Spirit Of God In Acts 1-2 (4).

Acts 1:1-2:47
God's answer - the answer of salvation - is spoken by Peter in Acts 2:38-39. It is the call for conversion. It is the promise of salvation. We are to come in faith to Jesus, confessing our sin and receiving His forgiveness. When Peter preached the Gospel on the Day of Pentecost, three thousand people put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The numerical growth - "three thousand were added to their number that day" (Acts 2:41) - was accompanied by spiritual growth - "the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved" (Acts 2:47). The spiritual response of the new believers of the new believers is described in Acts 2:42. A key word, in the final verses of Acts 2, is "together" (Acts 2: 44, 46). This spiritual response - unity in Christ, trusting Him as Saviour, commitment to Him as Lord - arises out of the powerful presence of God among His people (Acts 2:43). Let us pray that God will be among us - in power and in love - and let us pray that our lives will be filled with His power and His love.
