Today's Passage: Acts 2:14, 22-33

Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you; listen carefully to what I say.

 

“Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, which God did among you through him, as you yourselves know. This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge; and you, with the help of wicked men, put him to death by nailing him to the cross. But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. David said about him:

“‘I saw the Lord always before me.
    Because he is at my right hand,
    I will not be shaken.
    Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
    my body also will rest in hope,
    because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
    you will not let your holy one see decay.
     You have made known to me the paths of life;
    you will fill me with joy in your presence.’[b]

“Fellow Israelites, I can tell you confidently that the patriarch David died and was buried, and his tomb is here to this day. But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay. God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of it. 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.

Questions for Reflection

1.  What stands out to you in today’s passage?

2.  Why does that particular word, phrase, or image seem significant to you?

3.  What do you sense God is saying to you through His word today?

Write your response to the third question in your journal, on a piece of paper, or on a note in your phone. Spend some time praying to the Lord about what He has shared with you.
