Listen to this sermon!
In response to the lame man’s healing, crowds gather, and so Peter preaches. The new age of the Messiah has dawned, as God promised. The crowds acted in ignorance, rejecting Jesus, but now in generous mercy God was offering them forgiveness if only they would turn and embrace the true Messiah. In the place of the dryness, weight and emptiness of their souls, God will give them times of refreshing as they now walk in His presence, and continue their journey into blessing until God sends Jesus back into the world to finalize all human destinies.
