Acts: Life In The Spirit
Under The Influence
Well, Peter was still under the influence of the Holy Spirit when he stood up to correct the allegation of drunkenness, and he preached the gospel to well over 3000 people at once.
Let’s look at three main elements from Peter’s sermon to find these answers.
I. God Is Pouring Out His Spirit on all Who Will Receive (2:17-18)
If we don’t trust that God wants to give us what is best for us, then we won’t be very open to receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
The invitation is that of a loving Father, saying, “Come home. I love you and want to give you a life worth living.”
We need to stay in right relationship and close fellowship with Jesus, so the Holy Spirit can work through us.
II. God Is Showing Signs & Wonders to Signal the End of Time (2:19-20)
Jesus is coming back to this earth to take His people to be with Him forever.
III. God Is Saving All Who Call on Jesus (2:21)
How many of you here today would say, “I really need more of the Holy Spirit in my life”?
