Acts 2:42- 4:31

Main Lessons from Acts 2:42- 4:31
~ Miracles, signs and wonders are used by God to get our attention and bring it to His Son, Jesus Christ.
~ Healings are a miracle, and so is the change in behaviour that is seen in new Christians as a result of their indwelling by the Holy Spirit.
~ The name (identity) of Jesus Christ is central to salvation. There is no other way to be saved than to know who Jesus Christ really is, accept it and live one's life believing and trusting He is who He is.
~ The resurrection of Jesus from the dead is a crucial element of who He is. Jesus Christ is not just the atoning Son of Man but also the risen Son of God, whose resurrection vindicates His claims of divinity and proves He has succeeded in assuaging the wrath of God for our sin.
~ A good model for prayer begins with a worshipful acknowledgement of who God is and ends with asking His help to become the people He wants us to be.
