Acts Reading Plan | Week 2 | Day 3
Psalm 59:16 says “But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.” Ask God for Him to remind you of those things as you spend time with Him today.
Bible Reading: Acts 2:33-36
Read these verses three times slowly.
Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,
“‘The Lord said to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.”’
“Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.”
Reflection & Questions
As Peter’s sermon continues, the implications of Jesus’ resurrection become very clear. Firstly, Jesus is very much alive and active in the world. He is responsible for pouring out the Holy Spirit. His mission is being accomplished. And secondly, time is almost up for Jesus’ enemies. They will be His “footstool.” There’s no messing with Him. Both of these truths are very good news for his followers.
Peter ends his sermon, putting everyone on notice. “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Messiah.” In other words, you messed up and you better make it right with Him. Furthermore there’s no one else you need to be waiting for, hoping for, or looking to. Jesus is Lord and Messiah. He’s all we need.
- In what ways do you see Jesus still active in the world today?
- Are there anyways you need to make it right with Jesus today?
