Mineral Wells Bible Study Club working through Book of Acts

(Continued)

4. Peter speaks of the coming again of Christ – it means that history is going somewhere with purpose.

5. Peter insists that all that has happened has been foretold and if they will search their scriptures they will find it there.

6. Peter reminds them of their national privilege – the Jews were God’s chosen people.  That privilege brings a very special duty.  It is the privilege not of special honor, but of special service.

The early preachers always stressed the power of the risen Lord. They never regarded themselves as the sources of power, but only as channels of power.  They were well aware of their limitations, but were also well aware that there was no limitation to what the risen Christ could do through them and with them. Barclay says: “Here lies the secret of the Christian life. As long as Christians think only of what they can do and be, there can be nothing but failure and frustration and fear. But when a Christian thinks of ‘not I, but Christ in me’, there can be nothing but peace and power.”
