The Spirit and the Church: The First Sermon of the Last Days
Acts 2:14-21. As Peter begins his first public sermon that we have accounted within the Scriptures, she states the importance of the moment. The arrival of the Holy Spirit is a fulfillment of prophecy, some of which is actually pretty devastating. The Last Days have begun. It from this introduction that the entirety of Peter’s message builds into what God used to see His Church established. Peter has much to recite from Joel regarding the Spirit, the last days, and the urgency of the mission of the Church.
