Morning Reads - Acts 3:19-26; John 2:1-11; Psalm103(104):4, 1- The Saving Work of Peter (The Rock)


Good morning. Great is His faithfulness.


Greek word of the day- Καισάρεια Kaisáreia, kahee-sar'-i-a; from G2541; Cæsaria, the name of two places in Palestine:—Cæsarea.

Matthew 16:13

When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”


Psalm 103.4,1 .


Who makes his angels spirits and his ministers a flame of fire


Verse: Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God you are very great.


The reading is from Acts of the Apostles 3:19-26


See v.12- Where Peter's sermon is clarifying 5 key truths concerning Jesus:

  1. He reveals the identity of Christ

  2. The prophecy of Christ being rejected

  3. The full rejection of Christ showing ignorance of God's saving activity

  4. The saving response is to REPENT and be CONVERTED

  5. The rewards of the conversion, forgiveness of sins, renewal and confidence of the glorious Secong Coming of Christ.


Saving Work of Peter- "The first converts Baptized

Acts 2:40-41:

A Vital Church Grows

40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this [a]perverse generation.” 41 Then those who [b]gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about THREE THOUSAND souls were added to them.


Let's compare this to Exodus 32:25-29: 25 Now when Moses saw that the people were unrestrained (for Aaron had not restrained them, to theirshame among their enemies), 26 then Moses stood in the entrance of the camp, and said, “Whoever ison the Lord’s side—come to me!” And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together to him. 27 And he said to them, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel: ‘Let every man put his sword on his side, and go in and out from entrance to entrance throughout the camp, and let every man kill his brother, every man his companion, and every man his neighbor.’ ” 28 So the sons of Levi did according to the word of Moses. And about THREE THOUSAND men of the people fell that day. 29 Then Moses said, [a]“Consecrate yourselves today to the Lord, that He may bestow on you a blessing this day, for every man has opposed his son and his brother.”

3000 thousand died as the result of their rebellion and disobedience to God when Moses returned from speaking to God. Simon saves 3000 souls Acts 2, what stood out to me was the 3 for the Trinity. It also shows us that sin is truly death, and Christ gives life to all who are faithful.


John 2:1-11- "The First Sign at Cana"


THE WEDDING AT CANA is the setting for the first of the SEVEN SIGNS performed by Jesus mentioned in John's gospel. 1- Changing the water into wine (John 2:1-11), 2- curing the nobleman's son (John 4:46-54), 3- healing the paralytic (John 5:1-15), 4- feeding the five thousand (John 6:1-14), 5- walking on water (John 6:15-21), 6- opening the eyes of the blind man (John 9:1-41), 7- raising Lara us from the dead -(John 11:38-44). See my teaching video for full discussion and understanding.


"Trials are not enemies of faith but opportunities to reveal God's faithfulness."

Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you;


25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,


And be gracious to you;


26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,


And give you peace.” ’

2Corinthians 9:6

The Cheerful Giver

6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows [a]bountifully will also reap [b]bountifully.
