Daily Fountain 2017 - Hailing Or Nailing Jesus




Wednesday April 26

Bible Reading:     Acts 2: 22 - 39

Topic:         Hailing Or Nailing Jesus

The promise of Jesus in Acts 1: 8 is fulfilled in today's text. After the Pentecost, Peter's first message to a crowd brought in three thousand souls that repented.

How did this happen?

Peter was straight and forthright in his message.

The crux of Peter's message was that Jesus Whom the Jews despised and crucified was indeed the Messiah God had sent to them.

Peter went on to show how God endorsed Jesus as the Messiah through the miracles He performed and His death and resurrection yet the Jews for whom He came conspired to kill Him.

Touched by the message and its indictment a good number of Peter's listeners sought forgiveness through repentance and baptism.

"All have sinned and come short of the glory of God" (Rom. 3: 23)

You were not there when the Jews crucified Jesus just as many of Peter's listeners were not there too.

But as long as you continue to reject the saving grace Jesus gives, you are crucifying Him.

If also you are a Child of God and you are not living worthy of that Name, you are crucifying Jesus.

Are you hailing or nailing Jesus?

Prayer:

Thank You Jesus for dying on the Cross for my sins, Amen

Memory Verse:   Acts 2: 39

"For the promise is unto you and your Children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord God shall call"
