Observation

What was the crux of Peter’s sermon (32-33)? How did the early church operate (42-47)?

Application

Do I focus on the resurrection of Christ and the empowerment of the Holy Spirit in my life? Am I devoted to the Word of God, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, to prayer, to giving, to meeting together with God’s people, to thanksgiving, praise, and rejoicing?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:

Dear God, Thank You for the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the indwelling empowerment of the Holy Spirit in my life! Remind me to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh. Help me to grow in my devotion to Your Word, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread, to prayer, to giving, to meeting together with Your people, to thanksgiving, praise, and rejoicing! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

Spend some time praying for the following people and ministries:

  • Pat & Hannah Kelley
  • Joe & Sheala Lehosit
  • Fred & Shirley Leonard
  • Mark & Michelle Morgan (Cody, Kyle)
  • Michael Morgan

Ministries:

Community: Pray for the poor & imprisoned
