Gospel Truth for Today

The promise of God’s salvation is, “for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself.”

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

After the Holy Spirit fills the disciples and they spill out into the crowd, Peter stood among them and declares the good news of Jesus to all who had gathered. They were cut to the heart and asked what they must do to be saved. Three thousand received the word and were added to the church.

Questions For Your Kids

1. In the midst of the crowd at Pentecost, who stood up to talk to the whole crowd?
Peter, who before the crucifixion had denied Jesus, stood up and boldly declared the good news of Jesus to the crowd.

2. Where did Peter get his courage?
In Acts 1:8, Jesus told the disciples to wait and they would receive power from the Holy Spirit. Peter’s courage came from being filled with the Spirit of God.

3. How did the people respond to Peter’s message?
Acts 2:37 says they were cut to the heart and asked what they should do. Peter, in turn, gave them specific instructions to repent of [turn away from] their sin and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Luke records in the book of Acts that about three thousand people believed and were added to the church

4. Does God still pour his Holy Spirit out on people?
Yes. When God opens a person’s heart to believe the good news of Jesus, he fills them with his Holy Spirit (Galatians 4:6).
