What is Christianity About?
A Sermon on Acts 2:32
This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses. (ESV)
The message that the apostle Peter preached on the day of Pentecost was the message of salvation in Jesus Christ, the crucified Messiah. He did not try to preach what he thought his audience wanted to hear, but he proclaimed Christ Jesus as Savior who died for the sins of the world. Listen as Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones opens Acts 2:32 and shows how Peter, like the other apostles, preached the need of repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus as the only way of salvation and reconciliation with God. The message was authenticated by the facts of the resurrection. For the very same Jesus who rose from the dead commissioned the disciples to take the Gospel to every corner of the earth. This is the message that all men are faced with, for to reject it is to reject God’s only Son and the only Savior of the world. To reject this message is to be damned forever under the wrath of God. This is why it is so necessary to believe and be saved from the great day of God’s wrath. It is this message that is the only hope for sinners, that is why it is so important that the church take the Gospel to all people.
