The lesson is from Acts 2:1-41. The power of the Holy Spirit moving on lives impels and empowers disciples to tell the story of Jesus Christ.
"Peter raised his voice and addressed the crowd." (v.14)
The power of the story can change lives.
We as Christians are responsible for sharing the story of salvation through Jesus Christ.
I need to tell the story-- my story. When my story and God's story come together there is power to draw people to God.
In many ways the Church has separated itself from the world we are called to love.
For example, the Church has created a language of its own, a language which the world does not understand.
So that we might reach people for Jesus, God will enable us to speak the language of the culture. We must be relevant to the culture we are attempting to reach.
The Church should do its best to break down barriers.
"Then Peter standing with the eleven--" (v14)
Each and every disciple was making disciples.
Disciples make disciples. It is what disciples do.
Are you making disciples?
