Today’s Reading | Acts 2
Of all the wonderful things that took place in this chapter, which ones amazed you the most? Put an * in your Bible next to those examples. Was it the change in Peter’s behavior that amazed you? Remember, it was Peter who, in fear, denied even knowing Christ. Yet in verses 14-36 of today’s passage, he stood before a crowd and clearly proclaimed the gospel message to them. Or, was it that the disciples spoke to the crowd, and they understood them, not only in their own language, but in their own dialect? Maybe the most awesome thing may be what we find in verse 44. It is that “all” the believers had “everything” in common. This was complete unity. We must understand that they were unified because of what had happened in their lives. They were devoted to prayer, the Apostle’s teaching, and to fellowship with each other. When a group of people sell out to Christ, making their highest priority reaching the world with the gospel, unity results. If you desire unity in your church, each individual must make his spiritual walk a priority. How about you? Is your walk helping unity?
