4th Sunday in June
"Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both
Lord and Christ-- this Jesus whom you crucified." Now when they heard this they
were pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brethren,
what shall we do?"
And Peter said to them, "Repent, and let each of you be baptized in the name of
Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you shall receive the gift of
the Holy Spirit. For the promise is for you and your children, and for all who
are far off, as many as the Lord our God shall call to Himself."
And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, saying,
"Be saved from this perverse generation!"
So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and there were added that
day about three thousand souls. And they were continually devoting themselves to
the apostles' teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Acts 2:36-42 (NAS)

of Israel to know that God made Jesus both ______ and ______.
When the crowd asked what they must do, Peter told them to repent and be baptized

"So, all the Jewish people should know this truly: God has made Jesus to be Lord
and Christ. He is the man you nailed to the cross!" When the people heard this,
they felt very, very sorry. They asked Peter and the other apostles, "Brothers,
what should we do?"
Peter said to them, "Change your hearts and lives and be baptized*, each one of
you, in the name of Jesus Christ. Then God will forgive your sins, and you will
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. This promise is for you. It is also for your
children and for the people that are far away. It is for every person that the Lord
our God calls to himself."
Peter warned them with many other words; he begged them, "Save yourselves from the
evil of the people that live now!"
Then those people who accepted (believed) what Peter said were baptized. On that
day about 3,000 people were added to the group of believers. The believers continued
to meet together. They used their time to learn the teaching of the apostles. The
believers shared with each other. They ate together and prayed together. Acts 2:36-42
