Acts 2:14-21, 37-41, Being a witness of Christ  

On the day of Pentecost, the disciples of Jesus in the Upper room heard the sound “like the rush of a violent wind” (vs. 1-2). When they experienced of the wonder and power of that rushing wind they were immediately filled with the Holy Spirit and then something truly amazing happened: the disciples were transformed (vs. 3-6). 

Peter, in the text, stood up and reviewed the story of Jesus to the crowd in Jerusalem (vs. 14). He spoke boldly and in a loud voice. Realize that he was the same Peter who had denied even knowing Jesus. This was the same Peter who was hiding behind locked doors after Jesus’ death, afraid for his very life. Suddenly, however, Peter was a new person. He proclaimed all that God had done in Christ. He told how God had publicly endorsed Jesus (vs. 22-24); that we became witnesses of the resurrection of Christ (vs. 32); and that we can tell everyone of the resurrection life they can have.  

We are now made not just spectators, but participants, joyful witnesses to a sick, doubting, wicked, dying world, that because he lives, we live – and they can live also!
