PETER’S FIRST SERMON TEXT
This psalm of David was quoted by the apostle Peter (Acts 2:25-36) as a biblical proof that Jesus Christ, Son of David, was prophesied to rise from the dead without seeing “corruption.” Peter preached this sermon on the day of Pentecost and 3,000 Jews from all over the world came to faith in Christ. David’s prophesy had come to pass. Now everyone who trusts in Christ can be assured that the Holy One who defeated death and the grave will not abandon us, but will raise us to life to dwell forever with Him.
PRAYER: Dear Father, thank You for Your Word that reveals Christ to us and through Him, our salvation. For in Christ we are assured that we have received eternal life. Strengthen us to live according to this promise today. In Jesus’ name, amen.
