Peter really testified to God’s promises- that all that was promised and prophesied has come to pass!
The descend of the Holy Spirit is really powerful and when we want to do God’s work it is truly sufficient!
Apparently, Peter was a different man. He was not outspoken and he denied God before. But through the Holy Spirit, he ‘raised his voice’ and spoke up. And the Holy Spirit gave him wisdom to explain what was going on and courage to speak up.
At the Pentecost Jesus is here to save anyone! And the first step is to ‘call upon His name’
Naturally, we complicate things and think of so many ways to explain Jesus but maybe sometimes when we meet a believer or unbeliever in need of rescue it’s important remind and ask them to knock on Jesus’s door and call upon His name. No need to explain too much unless they ask but calling upon His name is power!!
It’s like picking up the phone and calling 999. We should pick up our spiritual phone line and call Jesus!
Proverbs 18:10: The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.
And when they call, for us perhaps we should exercise fervent prayer for God to plant that seed which may not be immediate but at least it was planted!
This i got from auntie LL, who once told me that it’s not about instant results, it’s really abt planting that seed and praying for growth and the touch of Jesus!
