This Sunday morning, as we celebrate the birth of the church at Pentecost, we have the privilege of baptising a man who has heard God calling to him and made a decision to follow Jesus and to commit himself to Him.
As we rejoice with him and his family we are challenged about our own commitment to follow Jesus.
Have we made that commitment, have we let it slip, are there things we need to get right in our relationship with him?
Reading: Acts 2:1-4 & 36-41
Questions to think about:
- The Spirit, coming powerfully on those first followers of Jesus, changed them and transformed them. How have you experienced the Spirit in your lives?
- The people to whom Peter was speaking recognised their mistakes and wanted to know what to do (v37). How can we help others get to this point of recognising their need of God?
