Epistle Reflection

Praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We have been given new birth into a living hope
by the raising of Jesus Christ from the dead.

New Testament Reading - The First Converts

thumb

36“Therefore I clearly state to everyone in Israel that God has made this Jesus you crucified to be the Lord, the Messiah!”

37These words of Peter’s moved them deeply, and they said to him and to the other apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?”

38And Peter replied, “Each one of you must turn from sin, return to God, and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; then you also shall receive this gift, the Holy Spirit. 39For Christ promised him to each one of you who has been called by the Lord our God, and to your children and even to those in distant lands!”

40Then Peter preached a long sermon, telling about Jesus and strongly urging all his listeners to save themselves from the evils of their nation. 41And those who believed Peter were baptized — about three thousand in all!
