Times of Refreshing

Preacher:
Passage: Acts 3:11–26

Back in Bible college it was said that we should be ready to preach, pray, or die at a moment’s notice. When hearing stories about the faith of those who have given their lives for the gospel remind us that being ready to die for the cause of Christ is nothing to make light of. What we see in this weekend’s passage (Acts 3:11-26) is that Peter was ready to preach as soon as the opportunity presented itself.

The miracle of the healing of the lame man in last week’s passage opened the door for Peter to challenge the gathering crowd about their treatment of the Author of life.

We now turn our attention to Peter’s message and evaluate our own response to Jesus’ sacrifice. Peter tells us that repentance leads to the times of refreshing that come from the presence of the Lord. That sounds like something we all need.
