Sunday Sermon - 1 Corinthians Message 41
1 Corinthians 15:29-34
"Peter, standing with the eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd, “Let the entire house of Israel know with certainty that God has made him both Lord and Messiah, this Jesus whom you crucified.”
Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?” Peter said to them, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you, for your children, and for all who are far away, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to him.” And he testified with many other arguments and exhorted them, saying, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” So those who welcomed his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand persons were added."
O Merciful God, thank you for convicting us of the truth that Jesus Christ satisfied justice and now sends his Spirit of peace as a free gift to those who repent. May such deep truth cut us to the heart as it did those who heard the Apostle speak at Pentecost; may we again lean into the promises of your mercy, as did the did the early church; and ever turning away from the pride that plagues our generation, may we again devote ourselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, honoring you in love for one another all the more as our isolation continues. Amen
