What is preaching all about?

When I have to preach a sermon, I sit down with my Bible and other books and prepare what I want to say.

Peter didn't have time to sit down and prepare. The Holy Spirit had come, and suddenly Peter was on his feet and preaching. (Remember, he was a fisherman - not a minister!). He told them about the message of the prophet Joel. But then what should he say?

READ

Acts 2:22-24

The Holy Spirit prompted Peter to tell the people about Jesus. What does Peter say about him?

  • Jesus is the Son of God (v. 22)
  • Jesus was crucified according to God's plan (v. 23)
  • God raised Jesus from the dead (v. 24).
Years later Paul was preaching that same message. Two thousand years later it's still being preached.

THINK

Do you ever wonder what to say to your friends about what you believe? Try to remember the three things Peter said.
