Scripture Union Daily Guide 21 May 2024 – Effective Witness

Daily Guide Devotional For Today 21st May 2024 (Tuesday)

Do You Know That? Daily Guide Reading is published by Scripture Union Press & Books Ltd, an arm of Scripture Union Nigeria. Daily Guide is a true nondenominational, interdenominational Christian Bible engagement/reading aid – meditate on the Bible without denominational colorations. May the Lord bless you as you study!

TOPIC: EFFECTIVE WITNESS
OPENING PRAYER: Dear Lord, make me more like you through the power of your word as I meditate on it.
SCRIPTURE: ACTS 2:22-36

Question(s) for Reflection
* Q 1: What does the passage teach about God the Father, or God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
* Q2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
* Q7: What truth is God revealing to me in this passage?

Scripture Union Daily Guide 21 May 2024 OUTLINE

Continuing his message to the crowd, Peter affirmed some fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith to prove that Jesus was indeed the Messiah and the one in whom we should believe to be saved (v.36). Read vs.22-24 again. What truths about Christ’s death and resurrection can you see in the verses?

Peter proved that Jesus truly died. He was crucified by the Jews. But Jesus did not die by the will of men. He died according to God’s eternal purpose and foreknowledge to purchase our salvation (see John 10:17-18). Jesus also resurrected from the dead, in fulfilment of biblical prophecy given long ago by David (vs.24-28; cf. Psalm 16:8-11). What other proofs did Peter give to drive home his argument in vs.31-35?

Peter’s message was based on both scriptural and historical facts that were well known to his audience, (the arrest, crucifixion and resurrection of Christ was less than two months at this time) which if they weren’t true could have easily been refuted by the audience.) What can we learn from Peter as we seek to proclaim the Lordship of Christ to our generation?

Practice/Word Application
So what? To be an effective witness for Christ, apart from having a personal encounter with Him, you also need to know what the Bible says about the Gospel (2 Timothy 2:15).

* Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

Closing Prayer
Lord Jesus, help me to be an effective witness for you.

Offer a prayer of faith in line with Mark 10:27
“And Jesus looking upon them saith, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.”
