Acts 3 - Another Miracle and Sermon

LINK: Acts 3

BACKGROUND

Acts 3 follows a similar pattern to Acts 2. When they went to the 3 p.m. prayer time at the temple, there was a miracle performed "in the name of Jesus Christ" before the Jews. Then, the people were in awe and amazement, and Peter used the opportunity to proclaim Jesus to the people of Israel by using the Old Testament Scarlet Thread of Redemption to back up his sermon. He concluded this sermon by quoting what we learned in our Bible Book Club study of Genesis: through Abraham's seed "all the families of the earth shall be blessed" (Genesis 12:1-3; 22:18). 

For those of you who have made the entire Bible Book Club journey, you will be so glad you made the commitment to read through the whole Bible when you see how important it is to know the Old Testament to understand the New! If you have not done this, please join in from the beginning! 

REFLECTION/PRAYER

Review some of the key Old Testament stories in The Scarlet Thread of Redemption. Could you share this with a person who was seeking to understand why Jesus came? 

Share it with a seeker or share it with a believer so that you can get comfortable sharing it. The believer will be blessed. I guarantee it!

Here is a linked list of audio Creation to Christ stories I have created (and will improve upon):



PRAYER

Lord, thank You that Your Word fits together from beginning to end! I am in awe and amazement about Your plan for all peoples of the world. Use us to accomplish Your purposes. We ask this in Jesus' name. Amen.
