How to Enter Into Fellowship

Sermon Notes

  1. (37-39) We repent in the hopes of removing the barriers that would prohibit or discourage full sincerity in our relationships.

  2. (40-41) Be proactive in salvation! Own your responsibility to take deeper steps; our goal is full immersion. Where God is with us, and all of us are together with God.   

  3. (42-44) A Christian fellowship is a repentant gathering that seeks to grow through greater devotion to God and one another by mutually admitting our brokenness in the light of God’s word.

  4. (45-47) Jesus body was broken because in his eyes every person is of sacred worth. So, despite our brokenness, we are called to carry one another so that together we may be made whole in Jesus name.

Acts 2:37-47

When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?”

38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off—for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

40 With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” 41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.

42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
