The Acts of God

Here's the essence of my sermon thoughts from
this morning in outline form.

Title: What God Offers & How to Receive It
Text: Acts 2:22-24,36-41.

1. Two firm facts about Jesus:
a. Jesus' crucifixion - we helped it happen with our sins
b. Jesus' resurrection - God made it happen

2. Two clear commands in Christ’s name:
a. Repent - a change of mind & a change of life
b. Be baptized - an imitation & initiation

3. Two precious promises from God:
a. Your sins will be forgiven (your past is forgiven)
b. You'll receive the Holy Spirit (power for your future)
