Acts 2:40-42 NIV 2011

With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from the corrupt generation.” Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

 

Peter spoke to those gathered after the Holy Spirit arrived at Pentecost. “Repent and be baptized,” was his plea. He continued with words of warning regarding the world in which they lived just as Moses warned the Israelites. Deuteronomy 32:5, “They are corrupt and not his children; to their shame they are a warped and crooked.” Many decided to follow Jesus that day. Conversion was not their destination. They followed Jesus’ words in Matthew 28:20. Taught by the disciples, they ate and prayed together. Salvation is not a destination but rather the beginning of a believer’s daily walk with Jesus.

 

I was reading A. W. Tozer the other day. His words ring true today. “Believing was not a once-done act. It was an attitude of heart and mind which inspired and enabled the believer to follow the Lord wherever he went.” As a young believer I thought I was done when I confessed my faith. Kind of like when I said, “I do.” I need to remember I chose to marry my husband forever. I’m walking with Jesus into eternity.

 

How you growing stronger walking with Jesus?

 

Walking toward eternity together,

S
