Scripture Union Daily Guide 22 May 2024: Sincere Response, Genuine Fellowship

Daily Guide Devotional For Today 22nd May 2024 (Wednesday)

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: SINCERE RESPONSE, GENUINE FELLOWSHIP
Opening Prayer:
Make my life oh Lord a reflection of you as I study your word.
SCRIPTURE: ACTS 2:37-47

Question(s) for Reflection
* Q2: Is there any example for me to follow or not to follow?
* Q4: Is there any promise for me to believe or hope for?

Scripture Union Daily Guide 22 May 2024 Outline:

How would you describe the response of the people to Peter’s Message (v.37)? How did people respond to your message, the last time you went out for evangelism? Sometimes, the response we get is a reflection of our preparation. When we prepare prayerfully and preach in the power of the Holy Spirit, like Peter, we can expect amazing responses.

The question, “Brothers, what shall we do”? indicates that even when it is clear that people are already convicted, they still need to be guided on how to receive salvation. Peter’s answer shows that repentance is vital to becoming a Christian (vs.38-41, also see Romans 10:9-10). Baptism is also important as a public confession and identification with Christ, but it does not save.

Read vs.42-47 again; observe the elements, quality, and results of genuine fellowship by the early believers. This is a classical model of a healthy and Spirit-filled church. When we are committed to God’s word and prayer, and there is sincere fellowship, love and sharing, the church will experience unprecedented growth and miracles.

Practice/Word Application
So what? How does your local church compare to the church in vs.42-47? Decide on specific things you can contribute to make it better.

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

Closing Prayer
Lord, visit our churches, revive our prayer life, and refine our love for your word and for one another. Give us miracles again!
Offer a prayer of faith in line with Matthew 28:20
“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
