The Ingathering

37 Now when they heard this, they were [a]pierced to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “[b]Brethren, [c]what shall we do?”38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call to Himself.”40 And with many other words he solemnly testified and kept on exhorting them, saying, “[d]Be saved from this perverse generation!”41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand [e]souls. 42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and [f]to prayer.

43 [g]Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and [h]signs were taking place through the apostles. 44 And all those who had believed [i]were together and had all things in common; 45 and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. 46 Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread [j]from house to house, they were taking their [k]meals together with gladness and [l]sincerity of heart,47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding [m]to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Discussion Questions

1. What is the response the apostle Peter is calling the people in the audience to do? How were they affected? Think back to a time in your life where you were convicted and cut to your heart. What did you do and who did you seek out?

2. In Acts 2:38, Peter gives the audience two commands. What are they and have you done them personally? What is the result or (what do we get) if you do them?

3. What does Baptism represent and show others about your faith in Jesus? Have you personally chosen to be baptized, if not, why not? What is holding you back?

4. In Acts 2:42-47, what are 5 or 6 of the key traits of the (new) church? Are you intentionally seeking & living out these core traits in your life? Are you in a Life Group? If not, would you consider participating in one as the believers in the early church did?

5. Do you have a personal relationship with Jesus? Go read Rom. 10:9 & 13. How is your walk with Him? Do you need to ask Jesus to help you in any areas of your life?
