What makes something “great”? Of course it depends on the “something”, your standards of evaluation, and your audience, but I don’t believe it to be a stretch to say that when you talk to folks versed in a particular area, there would be a relative consistency in their answers. For example, if you were to ask a movie buff what the greatest movie of all time is, or a basketball fan about the greatest basketball player, or a football fan about the greatest game of all time, there would be a short list of potential answers that be offered. For example, the greatest game of all time? Simple—Superbowl IV with the Chiefs defeating the Vikings 🙂
All right, enough fun, now let’s move to the heart of the matter! Last time we looked at the Holy Spirit coming, and this week we will see what happens when He speaks through Peter. With view to the idea of “greatness”, this week’s message will review what is one of the greatest recorded sermons of all time, especially if you consider the end result of some 3,000 souls being saved! It will be of good help to prepare your hearts by reading this sermon found in Acts 2:14-36, and pray that by God’s grace we will discover what makes this sermon great, and what that means to us today.
