    TOPIC: A STUNNING FRESH START



    TEXT: ACTS 2:14

    BIBLE TEXT:
    “But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judea, and all ye that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known unto you and listen to my words” (Acts 2:14).

    According to H. L. Heijkoop in his work, The Book of Ruth, “True believers do rise up again when they fall.” Peter denied Jesus Christ three times, even before two young girls (Matthew26:69-75), during his Master’s trial; he was regarded as a coward and backslider.

    Again, when Jesus had died he abandoned the soul saving business Jesus called him to. He told the other disciples, “I go a fishingâ (John21:3). Peter seemed to have messed up everything. However, the Lord got him back on track after His resurrection (John21:15-17).

    Jesus told Peter and the other disciples, “…but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on highâ (Luke 24:49b).

     From our text above, we can see the cowardly or timid disciple, Peter, after receiving the Holy Ghost baptism, showing boldness and high leadership qualities as he addressed the confused and doubting public. Indeed, this was a stunning fresh start for Peter; from a failure to an achiever.

    Challenge: The failure is he who fails to rise again after falling.

    Prayer: O God, give me another opportunity to work better for you.
