New Life with Christ

As recorded in Acts 2:37-47, the people responded to Peter’s address in a positive way. They repented, were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day (v. 41).

They were blessed in their new life with Christ as those in need received and they were full of joy as they approached spiritual living as a discipline by being devoted to the apostles’ teachings and to fellowship.

The early church grew because the members followed God’s plan and there was learning, sharing, and worshiping. The members loved each other as the Holy Spirit moved in their hearts. It is the same in everything we do in life today. If we follow God’s plan, things fall into place and we get more done than we ever thought we could.

This day with You Lord, we pray that Your Spirit moves in our hearts and we receive the insight needed to fulfill our role so the future is bright. Help us to receive the plan you give us to make a significant difference because of who You are and who we are; an important part of your plan and one of your children. Amen!

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
